Using Future Authoring to Improve Student Outcomes

EPRI will pilot the Future Authoring Program at Mohawk College with Jordan Peterson from the University of Toronto. This intervention, which is an online application of narrative therapy and industrial/organisational goal-setting, is designed to improve student performance using an effective, research-based, fully scalable writing program. The researchers will issue the Future Authoring Program using the 'Smart Start' orientation program offered to all incoming students at Mohawk College. The project is part of HEQCO's Access and Retention Consortium, in which members are evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention intended to positively affect the accessibility and/or persistence of students from under-represented groups in post-secondary education.
