What structures can we (TPSE MAG Teaching Practices and Strategies working group) take advantage of and how can we discover what new innovative structures are out there now?
Haynes’ Electronic Math Ed Seminar, MAA Project NExT, AMATYC’s ACCCESS, CoMInDS, SEMINAL, Progress through Calc, CBMS
Perhaps it was under this heading in our discussion that the desire arose for examples of structural changes within departments. Some have been reported on in ESME:
21 Nov 2017: Teena Gerhardt, Transforming the gateway: Redesigning large introductory-level courses [at Michigan State University]
5 Dec 2017: Robin Pemantle, Active learning at Penn: 2013–2017
2 Apr 2019: Ralf Spatzier, Inquiry based learning at Michigan
To access the video, slides, and associated links for these talks, go to
and track down the date.
If you know of other examples, it would be great to have presentations of them on ESME!

Please keep these terrific resources coming! You’ll find links to all these and lots more at https://www.tpsemath.org/links and https://www.tpsemath.org/meetings and throughout the TPSE website. They’re mostly in list form at this point, but we’re working on ways to organize the trove of information on the site into a more user-friendly format.
