​In collaboration with the Department of Mathematics, the College of Natural and Social Sciences, and the Office of Undergraduate Studies, Cal State LA's Center for Effective Teaching and Learning (CETL) administered an online mid-course “check in" to 6,688 students enrolled in nine redesigned GE Quantitative Reasoning courses. While the students' responses were generally positive, they identified unpredicted aspects of course coordination and structure as important to their success. 

In this webcast, Catherine Haras, Senior Director, and Owynn Lancaster, Instructional Designer, both of CETL, will describe the survey design and share what the results reveal about instructors' roles and the most impactful behaviors that students said supported their learning.  The presenters will discuss how the campus is applying the results to improve student success in mathematics and quantitative reasoning.
