A modular approach to redesign is a perfect fit for the tools and features found in Enhanced WebAssign (EWA). In this session, we will explore the powerful resources found in EWA, showing how simple they are to implement for instructors and keep students engaged and elevated in their thinking. Come learn how to harness the power of EWA and get your developmental math students learning math, not just doing math.

  18. 18. Quality Screen Time? Online math, really?
  19. 19. Quality Class Time Umm, I’m not in 5th grade any more!
  20. 20. The Power of Enhanced WebAssign • Enhanced WebAssign is a tool that engages students in and outside the classroom. • EWA gets students learning math not just doing math.
  21. 21. How does EWA engage? E W A EWA EASY

  23. 23. Sweet Carolina, oh, oh, oh.
  24. 24. Provide More, They Do More
  25. 25. EWA Efficacy Study Noteworthy Results: • Students overwhelmingly indicated they valued the Watch It component as the most important learning tool. • 7 out of 10 students using EWA said they were more motivated to learn and completed practice problems on their own even if not assigned or graded.  cengage.com/engagementcenter
  26. 26. EWA Efficacy Study Noteworthy Results: • Students using EWA received higher final course grades than students in similar courses without access to EWA. • Twice as many (50% more) students using EWA received a final “A” grade for the course as those without access to EWA.  cengage.com/engagementcenter
  27. 27. Take EWA to the limit! EWA has thousands of pre-programmed questions but you can easily add your own if you want.
  28. 28. Creating your own.
  29. 29. Easily Personalize Your Course
  30. 30. Learn the math, not just do the math • Provide developmental students other opportunities to explore math, so that they can see that just doing the math is not the main goal. • Challenge myself: “How can EWA motivate and engage students to learn the math?”
  31. 31. “Be all you can be in the PSP!”
  32. 32. Inside the Personal Study Plan
  33. 33. Personal Study Plan Settings
  34. 34. Personalize Instructions
  35. 35. The PSP is more than just math. • The study plan can help a developmental student – build their confidence of math – create a positive learning experience – help reduce their math anxiety
  36. 36. The Power of Reports
  37. 37. Search and See How Others Use EWA After setting up my WebAssign to take attendance, I no longer have to ask my students about their absences or being late and the majority of my students approach me to explain the situation and inquire about the work they missed.
