Green, Madeleine F.; Bezbatchenko, Annie W. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
This article begins by observing that foundations come in all shapes and sizes.

Beach, Andrea L.; Henderson, Charles; Finkelstein, Noah – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
Despite having significant knowledge of effective practices, along with curricular and pedagogical resources, efforts to transform introductory sequences have met with only modest success.
