The Utah State MTE-Partnership team participated in the 8th Annual MTE-Partnership Conference held June 23-35, 2019 in St. Louis, MO.

The team primarily engaged with two research action clusters (RACs) and working groups titled Program Transformation, and Equity & Social Justice. The team was involved with the Active Learning RAC which aims to improve instruction in courses offered for college freshmen, and the MODULE(S2) RAC which aims to improve mathematical knowledge of teaching through capstone courses for teaching majors. Seegmiller, Tidwell and Hadfield all gave presentations and will have papers published in the upcoming conference proceedings. (Published here, eventually)
