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)
