Goals of the Long Island Consortium

The Long Island Consortium is a multifaceted initiative to develop an environment for innovative instruction and learning in mathematics and mathematically based disciplines, such as social and natural sciences, engineering and business. The development of this enhanced learning environment has three major themes:

Systemic change in instructional practices to produce pedagogical innovation and greater cooperation in instruction across quantitative disciplines.

Creation of new courses and curricular materials that promote the integration of the mathematical sciences with subject matter in quantitative disciplines.

Development of human resources with improved teacher training and enhanced participation by underrepresented groups.

The Project is based on three types of interconnections for attaining these goals:

  • Collaboration and cooperation in instruction among faculty in quantitative disciplines.
  • Regional interconnectivity of energized faculty at different types of institutions.
  • The enhanced effect of combining change in modes of instruction with curricular reform, educational technology, and coordination of instruction among departments.
  • Cosmetic dentistry liverpool working in association with LOndon dentists
