Supporting Student Success: Contextualized Learning

On January 19, 2017, at 1 p.m. (EST), the U.S. Department of Education’s Supporting Student Success project team will host a webinar titled Supporting Student Success: Contextualized Learning. This webinar will address “contextualization program design” and present research supporting it as an educational strategy. Amy Dalsimer from LaGuardia Community College will share LaGuardia’s experience with contextualized learning. 

No registration is required. Simply join us here:

The Supporting Student Success project explores successful strategies in promoting student success in Adult Education and Developmental Education programming. This is the first of four upcoming webinars that will highlight promising approaches to program design and provide examples of community colleges implementing these designs in their programs. The program model approaches—acceleration, student support, and hybrid models—as promising strategies for increasing the college transition and completion rates of lower-skilled learners at community colleges.

Future Supporting Student Success webinars will be held on the following dates:

  • Supporting Student Success: Accelerated Curriculum - February 2, 2017, at 1 p.m. (ET)
  • Supporting Student Success: Supporting the Whole Student - March 1, 2017, at 2 p.m. (ET)
  • Supporting Student Success: The Hybrid Approach - April 13, 2017, at 1 p.m. (ET)

This PowerPoint on Supporting Student Success: Overview and Highlights was presented at the November 2016 Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) Convening.  It is an excellent resource for understanding the framework of the project in advance of the webinar on contextualized instruction on January 19, 2017, at 1 p.m. (EST).
