Increasing Diversity in STEM with Personalized Learning

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2021 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Historically math is considered one of the bottlenecks in STEM enrollment. First year college students who are successful in their Math courses first time taking it tend to enroll more in STEM Personalized Learning.  At the department of Mathematical Sciences of Lincoln University, we have adopted the use of ALEKS (Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces) and innovative Math lab to ensure better students’ success in STEM courses. ALEKS as a supplemental tool to the class instruction helps to personalize students learning through individualized chart based on their initial knowledge check assessment scores. Math lab focuses on helping students practice application problems designed as group project in their intended field of studies.
