During July and August, Corbin Campbell, Associate Dean, Academic Affairs, served as an advisor to Gates leadership about Evidence-Based Teaching practices in higher education, particularly for improvement of outcomes of students of color and low SES students. Part of Gates’ strategy is to use courseware and teaching improvement initiatives in gateway courses in broad access institutions to reduce inequities in outcomes. This culminated in a round table among three leading experts on teaching improvement (Barbara Means, Frank Vahid, and myself) and Bill Gates as well as the leadership team from the post secondary program.
