The projects presented below as a collection emerged independently but share an important goal: improving what we can see and know about curricular infrastructure in order to foster evidence-based decision-making about curricular choices. HILT is supporting this work by convening members of the project teams and providing project management when necessary.
The above figure shows typical courses taken prior to and following Physics 15a (see Enrollment View below for more details)
What we hope to accomplish with these projects
Our practical goals are twofold: to help teams working on these pilot projects learn from one another, and share a set of products and models with the Harvard community. Our sense is that there are many across the University who may be interested in these models and may want to reuse some of the tools and visualizations in their own context. Our ultimate goal is to help faculty, advisors, administrators, and/or students to make more informed decisions about curricula.
