As provost of a regional university, Tristan Denley has pioneered a wide variety of initiatives to improve college completion and students' academic success. These ideas stretch from institutional transformation and course redesign in a variety of disciplines, to the role of predictive analytics and data mining in higher education. His most recent work has created a course recommendation system that successfully pairs current students with the courses that best fit their talents and program of study for upcoming semesters. This system, which combines hundreds of thousands of past students' grades with each student's transcript to make individualized recommendations for current students, was an award winner at this year's IMS Global Learning Impact Awards.

Use historic grade data together with student entry grades to predict grades for degree path - has proved to be v. accurate #edu12 #e12_fs02

Interested to know if Austin Peay's prediction model considers the modality of the course as well to predict student success. #E12_FS02

Bit surprised that there has been no talk of student's use of social media in making module selections... #edu12 #e12_fs02

Students taking recommended courses are getting better grades - better grades mean that students are more likely to return #edu12 #e12_fs02

Austin Peay looking at what happens after graduation to help decision on which major to follow #edu12 #e12_fs02
