Seeded by a three-year NSF grant, the REBUILD project (Researching Evidence Based Undergraduate Instructional and Learning Developments) brings together a dozen senior faculty and a large group of postdocs, graduate students, and undergrads. Instructional teams in each department are analyzing data about prior student performance, investigating new methods for engaged learning, and supporting instructors working to improve their courses. This term's seminar will focus on analysis of grade penalties and their relationship to retention in our curriculum among males, females, and different ethnic groups, and we hope to foster a discussion on how pre/post test surveys can enhance our understanding of what and how our students learn.

Speaker:
Professors Ken Cadigan, Laura Olsen, and Tricia Wittkopp
