With the approval of the recommendations of the Student Success Task Force, there will be an increased need to provide data that reflects movement on student success outcome measures with regard to basic skills. At our Fall 2011 Basic Skills Coordinator workshops, 3CSN provided colleges with assistance in preparing their 2011-2012 Basic Skills Action and Expenditure Plans. The submitted plans revealed that colleges need more training in working with outcome measures. In addition, participants at the Fall 2011 workshops indicated a desire for time to discuss their action plan activities and to learn from one another.
Thursday evening, hosted by 3CSN Network Coordinator, Lisa Brewster, will be an opportunity to share your most successful BSI-funded program and learn from others about programs they have implemented.
Friday’s session, facilitated by Basic Skills Grant Monitor Mark Wade Lieu (CCCCO), Researcher Robert Pacheco (MiraCosta College and RP Group), and former 3CSN Project Director Lynn Wright (Pasadena City College), focuses on outcomes, goals, and data:
We encourage colleges to send a team of two people to the event closest to your college. We strongly recommend that a faculty leader from your BSI or Student Success committee (or equivalent), as well as a dean or institutional researcher attend.
Lodging, workshop materials, and meals Thursday evening and Friday will be provided by 3CSN. Once you register here, further instructions will be sent to you.
