Carrie and Kelly’s OER grant project will create open materials for Math 098. Community colleges throughout Oregon have been planning and implementing MTH 098 since 2014 based on recommendations from the developmental education redesign workgroup. The course was created to provide a shortened, more appropriate path for students to take MTH 105 and earn an Associate of Arts Transfer degree. Some institutions, such as Clackamas Community College, include the added benefit of allowing for MTH 105 to serve as a prerequisite to MTH 243, extending the pathway for students. Their goal is to create materials that: - Are learner-centered - Readily integrate group work and collaboration - Create opportunities for students to make critical thinking a habit of mind - Acknowledge and respect common anxieties, personalities, and professional goals of students in the “alternate pathway”. Visit their public MTH 098 course on MyOpenMath to learn more.
