October 5th-9th: Discussion on Self-Determination, Grit and Academic Resilience

In anticipation of our week long discussion on self-determination, grit and academic resilience, we encourage you to spend some time looking at Learning to Achieve:  A Professional’s Guide to Educating Adults with Learning Disabilities and Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century.  We will be referring to these resources over the week (Oct 5th -9th), and our panelists will be sharing some highlights from these resources for you think think about and relate to yourself and your learners.

We have a diverse and knowledgeable panel who are going to share their experiences in working with learners ranging from transition age youth (14-21) to adult basic and post-secondary education.  Please take some time to review these resources over the next few days, and then come with your questions and comments, starting on Monday, October 5th!
