The Forgotten Students - Understanding the Student Completion Crisis in Higher Ed and Emerging SolutionsOctober 2nd, 2018
Each year, over a million students drop out of college or university—some 31 million Americans in the last two decades. In fact, only 48.3% of first-time, full-time students at public universities graduate within six years, prompting academic leaders, like Arizona State University President Michael Crow, to dub this a “completion crisis.” These drop-outs and stop-outs are “The Forgotten Students.” In this “Forgotten Student” webcast, we will discuss:
Consider the following scenario. You are a senior administrator at a public college/university. To date, your institution has offered just two selective online degree options. Your board wants to increase revenue through more online or blended courses, certificates, and/or degrees. Your students are a mix – high school graduates, military veterans, and adult learners. Many of your policies and practices are from the ‘90s.
WCET has had an active voice on academic integrity and cheating since 2008. In 2018, academic integrity is threatened by a notable increase in the commercialization of academic dishonesty, to include contract cheating and the widespread online distribution by third-party websites of educational materials. These practices by “bad actors” directly harm institutions, faculty, and students.
