Developmental Educational Redesign: Increasing Time to Degree Completion
January 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Intensive Support Transitional Learning Community (ISTLC) is designed to close the academic achievement gap at the developmental educational level. Additionally, ISTLC aims to build and foster the skills necessary for students to transfer into credit level courses as they continue to matriculate.
This webinar will provide participants with a savvy way of redesigning developmental educational programs at their institutions. The presenter will showcase how to connect developmental education courses to credit level courses, an idea that promises to strengthen the core academic skills and lessen time to degree completion. Participants will also learn how to create and structure a new course sequence called Intensive Support Transitional Learning Program (ISTLP). This program addresses colleges’ focus on learning needs and college completion rates of students entering below the first level of developmental education courses in mathematics, reading, and writing.
