Track 3: Student Engagement and Persistence
Improving Classroom Utilization as a Mechanism to Enhance Student Success
What do you do when you have a growing undergraduate and graduate student population, no planned resources for new classrooms, and a course scheduling system that allows undergraduate and graduate courses to have different and varying class start and stop times? You build a new classroom scheduling plan. Through meetings with department chairs and deans, extensive analysis of past classroom schedules and room capacity and creative data analytics, the university developed a comprehensive new class schedule that expanded classroom capacity and promotes ability of students to schedule classes in times that better meet their needs as they engage in co-curricular, work, and family obligations.
