The Africa Central Area has experienced incredible growth, from 379 students in 2019 to 1,828 in 2022. To open more opportunities to participate in BYU-Pathway, the percentage of students of other faiths allowed to enroll in each gathering group in this area was increased from 20% to 30%.
Implementation of instructional teams
An instructional team consists of an instructor and a team of graders. Dividing teaching and grading responsibilities allows instructors to foster deeper connections with students, provide a consistent grading experience between courses, and decrease the average wait time for grades and feedback. This update will help BYU-Pathway to scale to better serve its ever-growing student population.
Partnering for student success
In another effort to scale, Anthology, a new student information system (SIS) anticipated to be operational in 2024, will allow BYU-Pathway and its partners to better serve all online degree-seeking students. This SIS update will systemically unite institutions in the Church Educational System through streamlined data storage, services, and tools for online students.
