LINKS 9 – Beyond the Classroom: Strengthening Ties between Classroom Teaching and Academic Support Services

02/28/2014 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Free

SS Lives HereJoin us and learn how academic support services, like library services, peer-assisted learning programs, and noncredit classes bolster credit classroom learning.

Participants and presenters will learn together how credit classroom faculty and counselors can work with their academic support centers to cultivate increased student success. Topics for exploration will include:

  • effective models for academic assistance,
  • outcomes for these programs, and
  • opportunities for developing collaboration and resources.

Outcomes

By the end of LINKS 9, we hope to have:

  • Increased participants’ understanding of what each of these areas do (library, PAL, noncredit) to support student learning.
  • Fostered a sense of shared or joint responsibility for students from our community (they may be coming from different levels at different times) and to bring resources to bear to support student trajectory from wherever they start to where they want to go.
  • Identified threshold concepts within each of these areas AND threshold concepts that span all of them. What do we all have in common?
  • Created a plan to move forward together. How do we create a plan to move forward so that we can continue to work together and thinking interdependently rather than in competitive silos?
  • Scanned what’s going on across the state and leverage/build on what people are doing to support students across the sector. Situating what each sector is doing as part of a larger movement. Create a larger collective impact.
