DEPARTMENT CHAIR SELECTED FOR CCCU WORKSHOP
The Council of Christian
Colleges and Universities (CCCU) chose Dr. Dave Klanderman as a facilitator
in its disciplinary faculty development workshop for math and computer
science to be held this spring.
Klanderman will team with
Cal Jongsma of Dordt College at the workshop to share some insight from
their collaborative research. The two math instructors plan to publish
a book that helps college professors teach aspiring middle school math
teachers. They are developing a framework centering on the historical developments
"The workshop itself is somewhat
of a launching pad for this project," Klanderman said. "Cal and I will
benefit from the feedback of other workshop participants. We will also
have time to set key parameters for the book project and to start researching
and writing one chapter as a sort of prototype."
The CCCU workshop will take
place May 22-27 at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. It is
designed to equip faculty members for more effective teaching and nurture
Christian perspectives on substantive issues in their fields of expertise.
