    1. 1. Developmental Education Redesign Recommendations
    2. 2. Overview  The DETF recommendations  Math  College Reading and Composition (English & Reading)  Administrative  Proposed timeline
    3. 3. The problem ―The more levels of developmental courses a student needs to go through, the less likely that student is to ever complete college English or math.‖ - Thomas Bailey (2009) CCRC Brief.
    4. 4. The goal of the redesign Move students quickly and effectively through their first college level course.
    5. 5. National and local models considered  Washington State - iBest  Tennessee – modules and math emporium  Los Medinos - acceleration in math  CCBC - Accelerated Learning (ALP)  Chabot College – Acceleration  University of Texas - new mathways project  APSU– mainstreaming  Aurora – Integrated English and Reading  Denver – Fast Start  Front Range – ALP learning communities
    6. 6. Our recommendations  Reduce the amount of time, number of credits, and number of classes  Curriculum redesign  Reverse design  What students need to know for success in college class  Active learning experiences  Ongoing process
    7. 7. Math
    8. 8. Math recommendations
    9. 9. College Reading and Composition (English & Reading)
    10. 10. CRC recommendations First Term Leads to 1A) Soft Landing Accuplacer test 1B) CRC 092 + CRC 091 Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements CRC 092 Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements 2A) CRC 093 Studio D Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements 2B) CRC 094 Studio 121 Completion of all REA and ENG developmental requirements
    11. 11. Administrative
    12. 12. Testing and placement  Colorado specific Accuplacer with ―strands‖  Uniform multiple measures built into Accuplacer system  Consistent test administration statewide  Validate Accuplacer scores every 3-5 years – are we using the right cut scores  To accomplish these goals use a system level institutional administrator (IA) in addition to college site administrators for local control
    13. 13. Student support  Use CCCSE practices  Orientation  Goal setting and planning  No late registrations  First year experience  Student success course  Tutoring  Supplemental instruction  Case management/academic advising/career coaches  College develop a plan to use for planning, initiating, and sustaining success for developmental students
    14. 14. Faculty support and development  Colleges create a professional development plan  Offer limited full time positions to current adjunct instructors during implementation  Provide release time for implementation  Course release and reassigned time to develop and implement student success strategies  Functional work groups on campus—i.e. BANNER, Advising, Testing—address the issues of the implementation process  Provide, with CCCS, continuing professional development focusing on research-based strategies  Train transfer level and developmental faculty
    15. 15. Measures of success  Successful developmental students and programs should be measured in the following ways:  In Math – Successful completion of any college level (100+) math course  In English and Reading – Successful completion of any college level (100+) English course or any college level discipline strands course.
    16. 16. What happens next?
    17. 17. Implementation teams  Core implementation team  Faculty  Focused on curriculum, content, training, and professional development  Redesign advisory group  Administrative (Banner, Business officer, Advising, financial aid…)
    18. 18. Timeline  Spring/summer 13 CIT work to develop curriculum and to create professional development training for faculty and staff  Fall of 13 schools that are already working on redesign will ramp up projects  Spring 14 all colleges should transition to the new models  Fall of 14 all colleges should be operating with the new models in place
    19. 19. Questions?
    20. 20. Workshop  You are being given a handout with a series of questions.  Arrange yourselves into small groups. These can be by discipline, or not, whatever works best for you.  You will work in 15 minute increments to brainstorm responses to each question. At the end of the 15 minutes, all groups will report out.  As you move through the questions, note common themes, concerns and emergent needs to discuss with the larger group
    21. 21. Discussion Questions  What are the implications of the DE redesign for…  Faculty?  Student Services?  Testing?  What are the barriers to implementation?  What kinds of training and support do you need?  How will this affect your partnerships with K-12 and four year institutions?
    22. 22. System Support  Faculty Professional Development  Online courses  Regional/state workshops  Campus workshops  Resource support  Ongoing Technical Support
