Northern Arizona University appears to be getting good results with their math emporium model, based on their internal analysis. The study isn’t water-tight, but it is fairly compelling.
In Episode 3 of our video case study, we get a look inside NAU’s version of a math emporium model.
In episode 1 of our e-Literate TV case study on Northern Arizona University, we gave a broad overview of the suite of initiatives (primarily) targeted at helping first-year students amidst the tensions coming from growing enrollments. In this episode we look outside of the classroom to see how they’re approach advising and student support.

Rather than highlighting a specific program or course redesign, NAU has invested in and implemented a suite of initiatives focused on improving student learning and success by rethinking the experience of (mostly) first-year students.

…As it turns out, it depends. Inside Higher Ed recently published its fifth annual Survey of Faculty Attitudes Toward Technology, conducted in collaboration with researchers from Gallup. These reports cover a range of attitudinal questions on ed tech, online education, and new models of delivering course content. One of the key findings of this year’s […]
