The following figure provides an overview of participation in BeWell, a summary of its multimedia contents and engagement statistics for the period between January 2013 and September 2017. This study was done during 2018.
A study was done during 2017 to determine the partipation rates of specific groups of first-year students. The following figure shows the percentage of first-year students per group that was part of a BeWell mentoring group in 2017.
Note: Almost all students in university residences are part of BeWell mentoring groups and they are therefore not included in the graph.
If it can be shown that BeWell has a positive impact on the performance of vulnerable groups, and if their participation rates are low, then we have most probably discovered a way to improve the academic performance of these students: Get them involved in BeWell!
At the very least this is a very promising avenue to explore in the future!
