Heritage University's Institute of Student Identity and Success is focused on finding and sharing promising classroom practices for increased success by first-generation students. Some years ago they began conducting interview-based research along with intensified review of the literature on college teaching and first-generation students. The research identified four key elements of college student success which are especially crucial for first-generation students: 1) Engaged Learning; 2) Confidence in their ability to succeed; 3) Bonding with their college peers, faculty, and institution; and 4) Vision of where their education can take them. They have recently released a series of 3-4 minute videos profiling breakthrough strategies that have shown promise.
They also have a well-curated list of additional references HERE.
Instructors can share these videos in the classroom or distribute the video links to students. Please share your ideas and suggestions by Replying below.
