Innovations to increase learning outcomes for STEM/ICT disciplines are urgently being sought. At the same time, enrollment increases of students with more varied skill backgrounds present new challenges. As enrollments increase, instructional tasks of faculty and GTAs also increase proportionally. Thus, an approach is sought to maintain and increase learning outcomes, while refocusing tasks of faculty and GTAs. BLUESHIFT addresses this need by refocusing the instructional approach, as well as optimizing evaluation activities using an on-campus Evaluation and Proficiency Center. In this presentation, the results of a study examining the effectiveness of the BLUESHIFT methodology will be explored, focusing on the influence of the methodology shift and its impact on workload redistribution, student comprehension of STEM/ICT topics, and student perceptions towards STEM/ICT topics, in an effort to disseminate results from an innovative STEM/ICT pedagogical revisioning.
