 George Reese and Ken Travers   [email] (Education, UIUC)MSTE Past, Present, and FutureAbstract: In this talk we will give background on the Office for Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education (MSTE). The Office was created in 1993 with a goal to catalog and promote math, science, and technology education programs at the University. Since then, the mission has evolved to one of public engagement that emphasizes partnerships with K-12 schools to integrate technology and improve curriculum. In this talk Reese and Travers will highlight some of the key collaborations MSTE has had and discuss future directions.

 Andrew Schultz   [email] (Wellesley College, MA)NetMath and C&M as a Catalyst for Pedagogical InnovationAbstract: I came to UIUC as a postdoc in 2007 and was assigned a Calculus & Mathematica course because of an image I had on my webpage. Only later did I find out that the perspectives of Uhl, Davis and Porta influenced the way I was taught linear algebra at Davidson College, and that my time as an instructor in the C&M series would in turn shape my own perspective on effective teaching practices. In this talk I'll discuss how teaching a NetMath or C&M course can impact one's perspective on teaching strategies in the "traditional" classroom.

 Peter Glaze (Department of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)Peer-led Learning and the Student Experience in NetMathAbstract: One of the most innovative aspects of the NetMath approach to online education is our integral student mentoring system. Qualified undergraduate students assist NetMath instructors, and develop a personal, tutorial relationship with their students. We will discuss how this mentoring system is intimately tied to the learning experience of our students, the pedagogical principles it implements, and our plans for its renovation, improved recruitment and supervision in the future.

 Deanna Raineri   [email] (Associate Dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences)LAS-Online: A Comprehensive Program for Promoting Online Education in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.Abstract: Two years ago, LAS launched LAS OnLine, an initiative to offer many of its high enrolling and high demand courses in a fully online format. Why do we believe that online education is an important part of LAS' mission and, two years in, what have we learned?

 George Francis   [email] (UIUC)Common Core Standards in GeometryAbstract: The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will be implemented by 2015 in schools of the 45 signatory states, including Illinois. Like all such national school initiatives these will have some effect on the way we teach mathematics to future teachers of America. This seminar has a first looks at the CCSS High School Geometry section, since they are most proximate to the netGeometry program in NetMath. Future seminars could include similar looks at other sections, such as statistics, calculus, finite math, logic etc. Pizza will be served. Let me know if you're coming and what flavor pizza you prefer. Please bring your own drinks.

 Kathleen Rapp Smith (UIUC)Modeling Under the CCSSAbstract: The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) promote modeling of observed phenomena as an appropriate mathematical activity even in the earliest grades. Come and spend a little time with the CCSS in mathematics. We will do examples of modeling as defined under the standards and discuss how working within the standards may change our future students and our preparation of future teachers. Please bring a graphing calculator if possible and a pencil and paper. Pizza will be served, bring your own drink.
