Intensive Skill and College Readiness Programs at Community Colleges will be an online discussion starting on November 7 and ending on November 11, 2016 from 9 am – 5 pm (EST). This discussion will focus on postsecondary programming which provides opportunities in skill development, college and work readiness, competency development, and career guidance. The models and strategies introduced in this discussion will be drawn from the U.S. Department of Education's Supporting Student Success Project, and moderated by Kaitlyn Kos, Center for Educational Services at Gateway Community College and Mat Favre, Adult Learning Academy at St. Louis Community College. In this discussion, two models which will be described include St. Louis Community College’s Academic Academy and the Academic Bootcamp at Gateway Community College. The goal will be to help generate discussion on student engagement experiences which help students become more prepared for college and increase retention. Participants in this discussion can pose questions, comments, as well as receive feedback from the moderators.
