Academic Council Meeting
March 22, 2016
Online Class Size
Strategies to increase class size:
- Change 16-week sections to 12-week or 8-week to allow time to fill/increase class size
- Open 12-week and second 8-week sections only after 16-week sections begin
- Offer classes with chronically low enrollment once per year rather than every semester
Ensure Student Success - "Students Finish What They Start"
However, Butler's overall first time/full time retention rate is 58%. We can improve this.
Canvas and SALSA give us the tools to increase student success and persistence, especially if combined with retention software. Retention software will also provide access to needed information to several Butler departments - Financial Aid, Advisors, Athletics, etc. thus improving efficiency. This one way to Invest In Our Employee's Success - Focus on Performance Excellence.
The schedule for software demonstrations is below.
