Member Event Recap: More students, more learning? (Nov 04, 2019)

The last two freshman classes have broken records for size and diversity. Members participated in a convivial discussion of how these changes will impact teaching and learning at UW-Madison. Panelists addressed three relevant issues:

  1. What the incoming first-years are like (Nathan Phelps, FIG program);
  2. How summer session can (or cannot) help this bolus of students graduate on time (Aphra Mednick, Summer Term and Precollege Programming), and;
  3. Since larger cohorts imply more dependence on  online and large enrollment classes, what do data say about learning in these environments (Matt Hora, Adult and Higher Education).
