The slides from the July 26 technical assistance for minority-serving community colleges, Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) Cycles, are available at this link.
This webinar addressed how community colleges can implement continuous improvement processes to further programs undertaken using Minority-Serving Institution (MSI) or other grant support. Presenters discussed how to implement simple PDSA cycles and shared effective ways of testing improvements.
The first presenter, Jon Dolle, integrates continuous improvement methods in the coaching, technical assistance, and research he conducts for the Regional Educational Laboratory West. Employed previously by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Dolle is experienced in implementing PDSA cycles, developing measures and analytic systems that support improvement efforts in schools, and providing training on these approaches.
