Description of the video:

00:00
my name is Dennis Groth and I'm the
00:02
vice provost for undergraduate education
00:04
at Indiana University Bloomington I'm
00:06
responsible for a wide range of programs
00:09
across the campus all supporting student
00:12
success they range from academic and
00:14
career advising all the way up to
00:16
learning analytics research activities
00:18
and so in this particular role I sit in
00:23
a perfect position to help our faculty
00:25
engage with data to support student
00:28
success as a research faculty member I
00:31
have a background in data mining and
00:33
visualization which perfectly connects
00:35
to the use of student data to understand
00:39
success outcomes pinch points in the
00:43
curriculum and other opportunities that
00:45
we can move students forward in
00:47
achieving their desired outcomes we're
00:50
really looking forward to connecting
00:52
more of our faculty with data and the
00:56
seismic project has provided an
00:57
outstanding opportunity to engage across
01:01
our campus and so looking forward to how
01:04
our chemistry faculty are going to look
01:05
very closely at how their students are
01:08
achieving certain outcomes in their
01:10
courses not only for their major but for
01:13
other majors that we see chemistry is a
01:16
particular challenging area for students
01:18
to get through

We are excited to engage SEISMIC partners across the country that share our deep interest in improving student outcomes in STEM courses.
