Focuses on the opportunities and challenges of using the science of change to improve the academic enterprise.
This is not another book about why higher education needs to change. This volume is about how to facilitate change. What could higher education achieve if varied stakeholders decided to work together to accomplish a shared vision by using data and scaling up evidence-based interventions? The contributors offer examples and instructions to help execute change in order to drive collective impact. When we understand large-scale change in other sectors, such as healthcare, business, and the social sector, it can help inform us of what collective impact looks like and how to get there. A deeper investigation into the science of change will enable us to work towards increasing access, overcoming racial disparities, reducing the need for remediation, and improving learning outcomes.
“...a helpful book. I recommend it to educators and administrators looking for tools to lead change in religious and theological higher education.” — Karl Stutzman, Reflective Teaching
