Enhancing personalized learning and engagement in a class with large enrollment

Duration1 Year
Project Summary

Introduction to Quantitative Decision Making (COMM 290), a required course for every Sauder BCom student, is regarded as one of the most challenging commerce courses in the first year. While the sections of this course are large, approximately 230 students each, due to the interdisciplinary nature of commerce education and varying high school preparation, there is substantial variability among students in terms of their exposure and understanding of the curriculum content. In this project, we aim to enhance personalized learning and student engagement with course content, instructors, peers, TAs and Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) leaders. Our objectives are to develop a series of tutorial videos, various interactive activities, and online quizzes with automated, immediate and tailored feedback so that students can adapt resources depending on their learning needs. We believe the development of these resources will contribute to the improvement of student learning.
