Seminar: Beyond Large Enrollments: Cultivating Latine Student Success in Introductory Chemistry through Servingness-Centered Evidence-Based Pedagogies @ The University of Michigan

June 7, 2024 at 4:00 pm, Location: 1706 Chemistry @ U-M

Speaker: Prof. Paulette Vincent Ruz, New Mexico State University

Abstract: In response to the critical imperative of addressing underrepresentation and educational debt among Latine students in STEM fields at Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), this project endeavors to develop servingness-centered and evidence-based pedagogies in the chemistry classroom. Active learning practices encompass a comprehensive spectrum of instructional strategies that prioritize dynamic student involvement, encourage collaborative participation, and foster experiential learning. However, research has shown conflicting evidence regarding: 1) Students’ perceptions of learning, 2) Barriers to implementation of these strategies, and 3) Whether these strategies are truly effective in bridging the enduring disparities in educational outcomes and opportunities for marginalized groups, which stem from historical disadvantages like unequal access to quality education, resources, and opportunities, remains a central question. This suggests that relying solely on active learning may not be sufficient to adequately tackle educational disparities faced by Latinx students in STEM classrooms or to nurture their ability to navigate between their Latine identity and STEM identity. We posit that true servingness-centered pedagogies and curricula should place emphasis not only on academic achievement but also on the integration of students’ Latine cultural heritage into the framework of science education within the classroom. This specific research project aims to establish a clear understanding of the concept of “servingness” within the context of the introductory chemistry classroom.

IU’s Learning Analytics Summit

May 17-19th, 2023 12pm – 6pm EST

Indiana University is pleased to invite you to its 5th annual International Learning Analytics Summit. Led by the Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS), the summit is free to attend. The purpose of the summit is to cultivate a knowledge building community with a shared interest in furthering faculty engagement with the widespread, sustained use of learning analytics. 

The summit is the meeting place for those of us who believe that faculty involvement with the use of learning analytics is critical to the establishment of a data-guided culture within higher education. With their expert knowledge about their students, disciplines, courses, and programs, instructors of all ranks are in the best position to take advantage of the new insights learning analytics can provide and make changes based upon those new insights. This can provide all higher education stakeholders with a better understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and choices students face as they travel on their individual pathways toward receiving a college degree.  

Through keynote talks, presentations, and working sessions, we will address both the opportunities and barriers of providing learning analytics, data dashboards and predictive models to faculty of all ranks at all institutions of higher learning.
