In this lunch&LEARN session, Patrick Jermann (CEDE) and Alexandra Niculescu (LEARN) will present the results from a study aimed at investigating to what extent online forums help students with diverse levels of mathematics ability succeed in the first year at university. 

This research relies on quantitative methods to investigate the intended aim. More precisely, it takes on an explorative secondary data analysis in order to process data already available in Piazza Forums.

The results shared in this talk could be relevant for different stakeholders at EPFL: it could inform first year teachers and feed into the first year commission with potential for improved feedback practices. It might also be relevant for pedagogical advisors, in the training of teaching staff active in this transition period.
