    "we were able to create dashboards on all of our courses through software called Tableau. Every faculty member can see everybody's completion rates, and they're broken down by demographics. Now faculty can go, "I'm struggling with that group of students, you're having success with them - what are you doing?""

The same behaviors that spell academic success can backfire at work - 0 views

  •  
    "Girls often don't get those counterbalancing messages. In fact, girls have their good-student behaviors reinforced as feminine norms in the media and the stories they consume. In short, we're in danger of raising girls who strive hard to find the right answer and know how to get good grades-but who don't know how to trust their own voices."

  •  
    ""According to multiple, peer-reviewed studies, simply being in an open network instead of a closed one is the best predictor of career success," he writes.

Why Professors Should Give a Damn - 0 views

  •  
    "In August my brother-in-law died suddenly. All my in-laws live in New York, and I teach in Kansas, so I was gone for a week from all my classes. When I got back, I had a grieving husband and four classes to manage. In October my grandmother died in New Hampshire. Same deal. Four classes, grief. You know what I didn't expect? My colleagues to ask me to attend all my committee meetings, my dean to reprimand me for being absent to attend a funeral, or my students to be unforgiving when I had to miss a week of classes they were paying for."

Understanding the Learning Personalities of Successful Online Students - 1 views

  •  
    Instructors should engage students in the learning process, but remain organized in their lessons. Keep in mind that students who possess Blue personality traits like to help others, so group activities can help meet the needs of multiple student color types. Group projects that are well organized help Gold students and give Blue students a chance to be cooperative rather than competitive; when such projects are designed to be active and entertaining, yet flexible, Orange students thrive,32and Green students can be challenged if appropriately designed, as Greens see knowledge as power.33

Evaluating a MOOC - 0 views

  •  
    "MOOC success, in other words, is not individual success. We each have our own motivations for participating in a MOOC, and our own rewards, which may be more or less satisfied. But MOOC success emerges as a consequence of individual experiences. It is not a combination or a sum of those experiences - taking a poll won't tell us about them - but rather a result of how those experiences combined or meshed together."

'Children Succeed' With Character, Not Test Scores - 0 views

  •  
    ""For some people, [the] path to college is so easy that they can get out into life and they've never really been challenged," he tells NPR's David Greene. "I think they get into their 20s and 30s and they really feel lost - they feel like they never had those character-building experiences as adolescents, as kids, that really make a difference when they get to adulthood.""
