Does increased structure in a course help students?

Nancy Ludden, our resident instructional designer, shared this article with me about how structure in a course influences the outcomes of minority and first-generation students. I’m always looking for interventions that cost me little time but have an impact on my students, and I think the conclusions these authors draw point in that direction. The abstract is below and you can click through for the full article.

Please email Nancy Ludden or if you’d like help learning about or implementing some of the teaching interventions mentioned in the article.
