Myth Busting, Design Principles and Encouraging Outcomes: Institutions Embracing Data to Help More Students Start, Stay, and Finish Strong in Higher Education: Driven by vital goals to help more—and more diverse—students learn well and finish strong on their academic journeys, the field of education is now using data science and design thinking—much like the healthcare, business, and athletics—fields to challenge conventional wisdom and significantly improve the student experience. In this session, led by Civitas Learning Co-Founder and Chief Learning Officer, Mark Milliron, we’ll unpack some of the important myth busting, design principles, and encouraging outcomes we’re seeing as leading institutions dig into this work.

Join us for our sessions:

Optimizing Student Progression: Why Personalization is Key for Completion: Completing a credential can be daunting for students without the ability to personalize their academic journey. See how students can effectively plan to achieve their goals with full context for essential academic decisions and then confidently register with conflict-free schedules that maximize credit hours while balancing life’s obligations. Institutions can improve persistence and completion rates with enhanced registration services, increased advising bandwidth, and visibility into demand, fill rates, and degree progression.

Emerging Student Success Trends and Community Insights: What do the data say? : Standardized tests predict college success. Low GPA students are the most at-risk. Full-time study is right for everyone. As higher education searches for solutions to its biggest challenges, leaders and policymakers are in search of universal truths of student success to apply in their context. Higher education long relied on cohort-level data and national best practices to accelerate degree completion and help more low-income and first-generation students achieve college success. This session will explore the surprising realities behind higher education’s “campfire wisdom” and take a closer look at what the data really tell us about why students succeed or struggle—and what we can do about it.
