S42: Institutional Initiatives for Introductory Student Success

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Introductory chemistry courses are an early part of most science curricula and sometimes serve as an unintentional barrier to student completion of STEM degrees. This symposium will explore institutional initiatives aimed at enhancing student success in introductory chemistry courses and related issues. Has your school tried something new, successfully or not? What concerns have driven change or resistance? Many schools have teaching centers for faculty or tutoring centers for students. Are these working on your campus, why or why not? How are best practices from individual classrooms transferred more broadly within a department or school? Freshman seminars or early research experiences may help focus and motivate students. Can these be reasonably implemented given limitations in personnel and resources? What aspects have you found to be most valuable for students? By sharing stories, we may be better prepared to launch programs that keep STEM accessible to all interested students.

Presider: Aimee Miller, Millersville University
