s you want to solve UCF Redesign Goals Why did we consider a mathemati cs course redesign? Increase learning outcomes and succ ess rates while decreasing cost* and withdrawal rates Received the NCAT Grant in Spring 2 008

Cost* - this goal was added as a require ment for the NCAT participation Why are you considering a cour se redesign? A) Current success rate of students B) Budget concerns C) Space concerns D) Administration request or requirement E) Creation of online or blended learning op tions

F) Two or more of the above G) None of the above Choose the learning t echnology, text, and method of delivery th at best fit your goals What redesign models can you

use? Emporium (Lab) Model*** Replacement (Hybrid) Model*** Supplemental Model Fully Online Model ***Typically produces the best results (student learning and cost) for Mathematics courses How does UCF run their classes/l

ectures, administer exams, and s upport students? Students spend one hour i n class review concepts from the previous w eek highlight upcoming material receive administration information

MALL Hours: Students spend a required three hours in the Mathematics Assist ance and Learning Lab (MALL) Online hw and quiz assignments are com pleted for the most part in the lab Proctored environment MALL staff provide on-demand assistance for students

Online Testing: Testing is completed online in a proctor ed environment using a password syst em Immediate feedback Free response questions or multiple choice Challenge week ADA time accommodation adjustments Integrity violations almost non-existent

Cost savings Which model do you think woul d be most appropriate for your institution? A) Emporium (Lab) Model B) Replacement (Hybrid) Mode l C) Supplemental Model D) Fully Online Model

Use of Technology Current Trend nationwide Provides for immediate feedback Reduces grading Addresses the needs of our students

lp me solve this feature helped y ou learn College Algebra? (Fall 2 011; n=1266) 92.1% of students replied with either very much or somewhat What learning technology choices do I have? Will the technology and associ ated textbook be used in face-to-face classes?

blended (hybrid) classes? a lab setting? completely online classes? Does my institution require use of a specific LMS? Integration concerns Provision of technical supp ort? Technical support for students

and faculty Progress monitoring? Does the technology support Build an assessment plan Does the course you are consi dering for redesign currently h ave an established assessmen

t plan? A) Yes B) No C) I dont know Assessment is a major part of pedagogy We cannot state that students are learning unless we have evidence to support the clai m. We do not know if or how to change our stra

tegies unless we have analyzed the data fro m measures. We cannot develop our effectiveness as tea chers unless we synthesize the results of m ultiple assessments to improve our perform ance. Purpose of Assessment The purpose of Assessment is to provi de a continuous process of

planning measuring analyzing results using the results to make informed d ecisions preferably, this will lead to improve ments Assessing the Program Well

defined learning goals Well defined learning objectives Two measures for each Consistency

UCF used the coordinator funct ion of MyMathLab Start small What was small for UCF? UCF is the 2nd largest in the country

Fall 2013 enrollment 59,770 One of Floridas eleven public univers ities Academic Programs: 91 Bachelors 86 Masters 3 Specialist

30 Doctoral 1 Professional (Medicine) Our pilot was 941 students! Most successful redesigns have start ed with a pilot and continued until ful

ly implemented Add additional technology as comfort able Some institutions start with homework and then add quizzes, tests, adaptive learning, multimedi a, study plan, etc.
