  2. Course Redesign at USFOffice of Student Success • Selection Criteria: • Large enrollment • High DFW rates • Interest of department team • Courses Selected in March 2011: • COM 2000: Introduction to CommunicationDFW 16 - 20 %, 230 – 300 students • BSC 2011L: Diversity Lab with New Skills Supplement • DFW 16 – 20 %, 640 – 840 students • Cost: • Stipend per faculty member, $6000 • Course Release, up to $6000 • Instructional and technical support, $63,000

  3. COM2000Specific Issues and Redesign Effort • ISSUES • REDESIGN • Hybrid course with 50 minute face-to-face meetings • 10 sections with 25 students/section; capacity was 250 students • Limited time for active learning and teamwork • Students unpreparedand not reading • Supplemental model • Hybrid course with 75 min. face-to-face meetings • 8 sections of 40 students; capacity will be 320 students • LearnSmart Modules to enhance metacognitivecritical thinking skills • Teamwork and in-class team discussions

  4. BSC2011LSpecific Issues and Redesign Effort • ISSUES • REDESIGN • 3 hour face-to-face lab meetings • Students unprepared and not reading lab materials • Critical thinking skills lacking • Science writing skills lacking • Essential computer skills lacking (e.g., Ms Excel) • Replacement model • 2 hour face-to-face lab meetings and 1 hourpre-lab modules • Create post-lab online quizzes • Supplemental modules to address the 2 last points (Summer 2012)

Time Line Attended NCAT S-10 Proposal Approved F-10 Implemented 1 Class S-11 Implemented 2 Classes F-11 College Algebra Redesign Elements of Redesign 1 Lecture / 2 Required Labs Multiple attempts HW/Qz Immediate feedback 70% mastery level for HW 2 attempts high-stake tests Personalized study plans Multiple resources 1-1 tutoring in lab Weighted weekly avg. posted Cost for Coll. Alg. Classes Cost of Pilot with other classes is high Expanding redesign to all classes would be cost effective
