Improving Student Outcomes Through a Community-Based Approach to Learning and Support
Concurrent Session 1
First-year math classes are often the gateway to an undergraduate degree. Success instills confidence, and opens the door to degrees in any field, including STEM. And yet, failure rates for first-year math at many institutions can be above 50%, having significant, long-term impacts on a student’s educational trajectory. In this session, Juliet Greenwood, Vice Dean for Educational Initiatives at Arizona State University will share her experience using digital communities to scale personalized support and dramatically increase successful completion rates among ASU Online’s first-year math students. She'll also share how ASU plans to extend the community-based approach across the institution.
