Facilitated by Prof. Adam Bridgeman (Educational Innovation, University of Sydney)
Data on engagement and achievement has been be used in the Faculty of Science at the University of Sydney to both identify potentially at risk students and to provide students with personalised feedback on their progress. In the large first year chemistry units, this personalisation of the student experience has been extended to push resources to students in the learning management system according to need. Over a sustained period, these interventions have led to improved retention rates across the Faculty and enhancement of student learning outcomes.
Professor Adam Bridgeman, has been recently appointed as Director of Educational Innovation at the University of Sydney after making an impact improving the student experience in the Faculty of Science over a number of years in multiple roles, from teacher of chemistry to Associate Deans of Learning & Teaching. He has received several awards for his teaching and for his work enhancing student experience using academic data to personalise support in the Faculty of Science as Director of First Year Studies.
