The Course Redesign with Technology (CRT) program assists faculty in redesigning bottleneck courses in an effort to improve student success by decreasing the number of repeatable grades earned in such courses. The CRT program experience consists of faculty participants attending a Summer Institute, engaging in professional learning communities, reconnecting with the CRT team during a mid-year meeting, and working on their e-Portfolios across the year-long program cycles. The CRT team provides support to faculty as they complete program requirements and actively collects data to determine program outcomes.
The CRT team has completed a number of program evaluation tasks including: 1) administering surveys to Summer Institute participants to get feedback on the quality and relevance of the sessions; 2) administering surveys to faculty prior to the Mid-year meeting to get updates on course redesign progress; 3) administering surveys to get participant feedback about the Mid-year meetings; 4) administering surveys to students in redesigned courses to get feedback on the pedagogies and technologies used in redesigned courses and their perceived impact on learning; 5) reviewing faculty e-Portfolios to gain insight about the course redesign process. Below you will find links to a sample of outcome documents based upon these evaluation tasks.
