Description & Coverage
Description:

Students of color and those of lower economic backgrounds and of underrepresented groups appear to face a disadvantage when they transition from high schools into colleges. These students tend to have lower academic preparation than white students, which leads to higher levels of stress and anxiety, as well as an increased placement in remedial courses, which negatively impacts their graduation rates. As institutions become aware of these facts and take appropriate measures to improve educational experiences, they must implement Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) initiatives in order to provide equal access to education.

Integrating Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT): An Effective Tool for Providing Equitable Opportunity in Higher Education provides information on Transparency in Learning and Teaching (TILT) concepts and how they can be used in course development to improve student learning and performance. It focuses on bringing positive learning experiences to college students, especially first-generation students, which can lead to higher levels of academic success. It strongly advocates for transparent education and provides guidance for overcoming the existing accessibility gap in higher education. Covering topics such as business education, online learning platforms, and teaching modalities, this book is an indispensable resource for academicians, faculty developers, administrators, instructional designers, professors, and researchers.
