PCC hosted its inaugural IDEEA Exchange on Friday, April 26. The virtual gathering focused on how our community of practice can intentionally establish the conditions for students to succeed in gateway English and math courses. Change is difficult and only achievable with a coherent plan or a cohesive team working collaboratively toward similar goals and objectives. This convening is intended to offer time and space for IDEEA institutional partners to exchange lessons learned in the process of implementing their respective DERA plans.

The IDEEA Exchange included a keynote address from nationally focused Student-Ready Strategies, a case study presentation led by Saint Xavier University’s math redesign team, and a session from PCC’s public policy team to comment on the DERA legislation.
