Please see this document for both a recording of the forum and the latest comments in the document and add your thoughts to this discussion post.
I read through the sections of the document that I felt qualified to comment on -- the first sections through Developmental Math. It all looks really good and useful.
In the Dev Math section a paragraph starts with these two sentences:
Topics in developmental mathematics courses should be taught in depth and not as a preview of topics to come in later courses. For many students, any given mathematics course could be their last one.
I recommend deleting the second sentence. I doesn't seem to be true for Dev Math, else why would a student be taking a dev math course. And I don't think it contributes anything useful to the discussion of topics.

Also in the concusions section the work "class-room" should not be hyphenated.
