Instructors will share their experiences in redesigning the first-year sequence of a language course through a university initiative focused on increasing student success in gateway courses. Instructors eliminated the traditional textbook and publisher courseware and used only Open Educational Resource (OER) and self-authored materials employed in the Adaptive Learning program, Realizeit. These efforts have led to recognition by the Affordability Counts Initiative in their state promoting increased access to a variety of student populations within the university community. They have had proven success in the online delivery mode with respect to students’ prior knowledge of subject matter, textbook and courseware fatigue, and DFW rates. Learn a bit about the process, lessons learned, and strategies implemented to leverage the benefits of online, blended, adaptive, and active learning, while working toward program-wide implementation, as well as additional, fortuitous outcomes of the project.
