The New GVSU Student Success Collaborative:

The Impact of Course Analytics on Student Advising

Richard Staley
and
Joseph Harrington,

The Educational Advisory Board

GVSU has joined the Education Advisory Board's "Student Success Collaborative", a national initiative in the beta phase of developing predictive analytics based on a student's performance. The program offers advisors information to add to our other advising strategies which can aid students in deciding upon their academic majors. It also serves as an intervention alert to advisors when students who have declared majors or "pre"majors are struggling in key courses or in timely completion of courses. Advisors will begin to use the program in fall of 2013. All faculty who advise and/or counsel students to successfully complete their degree at GVSU are strongly encouraged to attend!

Teaching as Performance Part II:
Hands On!
Kurt Ellenberger and
Kathryn Stieler,
Pew FTLC
The performance aspect of teaching can be both daunting and exhilarating. Like it or not, when we walk into a classroom we walk onto a "stage" of sorts, yet, as scholars, we are not trained very well for this aspect of our job. Performing artists are well versed in the strategies and the preparation required for successful delivery. This will be an entirely "hands on workshop" in which participants will practice the performer's strategies that will maximize delivery and make the classroom more vibrant and dynamic. Please register at http://www.gvsu.edu/seminar/ under Teaching and Learning.

2263 KC Redesigning Developmental Courses to Improve Retention Webinar  

Research indicates approximately 1/2 of all incoming students are underprepared for college, needing remedial work in at least one subject. While the majority of colleges offer developmental coursework, statistics confirm less than 25% of students who enroll in remedial or developmental classes go on to finish their degrees.

Join us online as we showcase Austin Peay State University redesigned their developmental courses using the Linked Workship (or SLA) model and significantly increased student persistence rates. Their success led to the National Center for Academic Transformation (NCAT) to include this course model as one of the 6 recommended models for redesigning developmental courses.
