"Our guiding question has become 'what can we do to eliminate race and income as predictors of student success?'" says David Wiley. The result was something called the Belonging Framework, integrated into Lumen learning's broader Evidence-based Teaching Practices Framework (it doesn't have a page of its own; you can find it on the lower right of the page). Lumen also "created user testing centers embedded within minority serving institutions (MSIs)." I'm not going to be critical, because addressing inequity is worthwhile, but I will note that there are various ways to define 'student success', and these have a lot to do with how we define equity as well.
