Measuring the Reach and Influence of InTeGrate Materials on Faculty Teaching Practices
To establish the uptake and influence of InTeGrate, the project collected course data and reports from the material developers and the "mentored" faculty, along with "reach" surveys administered more broadly in December of 2016 and October-November of 2017. We see that the InTeGrate community is growing and, to-date, involves over 1000 faculty from over 700 institutions. These faculty report teaching courses that adopted, adapted, or were inspired by InTeGrate materials to over 70,000 enrolled students. All 50 states, Puerto Rico, India, and Micronesia are represented from diverse institutions including four-year colleges, two-year colleges, and minority serving institutions. These are conservative estimates of overall uptake and influence, as they only include respondents. Additionally, materials developers and "mentored" faculty reported that InTeGrate influenced the ways in which they assess and think about student learning as well as the types of pedagogies they use, and respondents from both groups indicated that experience with InTeGrate influenced the manner in which they plan their courses and the content they use.
