During our last meeting, I jotted down a few ideas. As these were more specific to me and the PTW program, I’ve noted only a couple general points below.
- Base “student success” initiatives on recent research finding with our student population that is conducted by educational research experts. Self-reported data from students is a good start, but more robust studies would be extremely useful.
- Have an actual “open door” policy. Based on my visit to the Biomedical Informatics program offices in the new Academic Complex, being able to meet with faculty there is antithetical to the purported “open door” policy.
