Dr. Beers will lead a team to create digital resources for Psychology 2367.01, a second-level writing general education course. Because it fulfills a GE requirement, the course draws students from outside the major and would effect over 500 students per year enrolling in the course. Moreover, it would effect the 400 students annually enrolled in Psychology 3325, for which the resources would also be used. Beers suggests that in addition to the savings, this would offer students a more accurate and helpful representation of course content. Because only 3-9% of students found the previous textbook the most helpful course resource (and 15-20% found it the least helpful resource), Beers asserts digital resources would offer more relevant information in a more interactive and helpful format.
