Why Intervention and Impact Evaluation Is Critical for Improving Student Learning

Monday, February 04 | 4:45PM–5:30PM | Plaza Ballroom ABC
Session Type: Professional Development
This session will highlight effective strategies for designing and assessing the impact of interventions aimed at improving learning. Drawing on two recent SEI case studies that reported research on UMN's Active Learning Classrooms and the U-Pace instructional method, participants will engage in a discussion of the challenges and opportunities that arise when we intervene to improve student success and learning, including how such interventions can be influenced by students, faculty, and administrators. Participants will leave with strategies to comprehensively document student success and gain a better understanding of why intervention and impact evaluation is critical for improving student learning.
