Logica.Now has been called to help reviewing the design of a summer curriculum dedicated to college freshmen. The curriculum is centered around an interactive Summer Class for incoming freshmen that has the aim to both introduce newcomers to the new college environment and study and research the natural and socio-economical reality of the College's region.
We've been embedded in the inter-faculty team tasked to design the class and assigned with two main tasks:
We developed the curriculum's review by participating to key meetings, interviewing team members and reviewing past/current documentation relevant to the curriculum design. Three main objectives have been identified:
The review's outcome has been the creation of a list of recommendations targeting specific critical areas plus a list of interventions designed to correct those issues.
A more specific task has been the production of a list of learning outcomes that both reflect the core ideas of the Curriculum and, if met, will ensure enduring understanding. Accordingly we designed a number of deliverables as determined acceptable evidence consistent with the desired results.
All this has been carried out following a "Backward Design" approach and it allow to craft a successful learning experience, as demonstrated by an increase in enrollment, retention and students' satisfaction (data extrapolated from student evaluations and registrar's).
