Above all, this is an effort driven by excellent planning and coordination. We will build a community of support at all levels, driven by the goal of Greatness. This includes the coordination and planning of the following resources to support Great Gateways:
- Supplemental Instruction
- Learning Communities
- Math and Science Support Center (MASS)
- Academic Writing Center (AWC)
- Peer Tutoring (LAC)
- Supplemental Review Sessions (SRS)
- Course Design Institute
- Early Term Feedback
- Flipped Pedagogy & Active Learning Workshops
- Canopy eLearning ecosystem
- eLearning Studio
- Data analysis and collection
In the coming fall, we will be reaching out to faculty, staff, and students for feedback on how we will best accomplish this goal together. These Listening Sessions will inform and help define the needs and appropriate action for our Gateways community.
Following our Listening Sessions, we will in early SS15 begin the tradition of bringing together our partners and course coordinators for Great Gateways Summits to hold collaborative sessions regarding successes and areas of opportunity within UC Gateways according to discipline. These meetings will be outcomes-driven and assessment-based.
We will leverage our community and partnerships by making strategic investments in faculty development where needs and potential for impact are greatest. Moving forward, we will create a proposal process to launch in SS15, where our community will solicit funding proposals at the college and unit-level that best articulate and propose initiatives to make Great Gateways.
To aid in this investment, the Provost’s Office is contributing up to $60,000 of professional development funds to be made available to those initiatives and proposals that result in the greatest sustainable impact on student learning and retention.
Together we will create a support structure that effectively and efficiently pulls together students, faculty, and staff in the design, implementation, and assessment of courses that make effective use of innovation, evidence-based instruction, and the principles of course design to support stronger student retention and overall academic success at UC.
