It’s quite evident that improving retention and degree completion are complex tasks that involve the entire university structure. STEM education adds a layer of complexity that can be challenging when curriculum design and delivery modalities are changing toward an online system.

Who should attend?

  • Faculty
  • Curriculum directors and developers
  • Math instructors for remedial courses in colleges and universities
  • Math instructors in community and technical colleges
  • High school teachers of Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and honors math classes
  • Academic leadership responsible for increasing course completion and graduate rates

Why you don’t want to miss this!

Declining numbers of traditional-age high school graduates, changing student demographics, and declining program completion are creating an environment of uncertainty in higher education. More than ever, it is crucial for educators to understand what current and prospective students want and need in order to increase retention and encourage degree completion. Several years of data collection revealed that students are looking for flexibility in course scheduling and structure as well as clarity in course content and delivery.

Our presenter will document how her course redesign, along with converting traditional face-to-face technical mathematics courses to an online or hybrid delivery mode, were implemented to ensure accessibility and the achievement of learning objectives as well as lessons learned from students’ reaction to online delivery mode and the resulting changes to the course design.

Additional Detail

Varying course delivery options, such as providing online and hybrid sections, is responsive to modern students’ need for flexibility—yet teaching STEM subjects in this modality can be challenging. Math courses have been called “bottlenecks” for students’ progress towards degree completion. Student retention and course completion begin at the foundation of the educational pyramid: individual programs, departments, and advising. What can teachers do to impact student success?

Faculty will gain practical insight into redesigning technical mathematics courses into online or hybrid delivery in order to improve accessibility without compromising the achievement of learning objectives.  While completion and graduation rates are a global concern for institutions and administration, faculty and department leadership will learn how to make contributions from the “bottom up.”
