Action Learning in the Classroom

Action learning, an interactive dialectic-based approach, is an educational method that engages students in the process of defining, redefining, and solving real-life problems. This webinar identifies strategies to create a classroom experience that enables critical thinking and engages students through team-focused learning. Action learning requires direct participation, so join the webinar facilitators as they demonstrate action learning “in action.”

Collaboration: Connect With Me

In our global world, what methods do we use to communicate and are those methods effective? There is a saying that mobile devices allow us to connect with people half a world away, while ignoring people just across the table. As instructors, we challenge our students to communicate with each other in on-campus classes, but how do we connect them in online environments? What steps can we take to help students continue those efforts in communication after the semester ends? How do we encourage the development of soft skills needed to be successful in the corporate world? Join this webinar and collaborate on ways to connect students with us, each other, and course content!

ACHIEVING THE DREAM EQUITY STATEMENT

Community colleges are an indispensable asset in our nation’s efforts to ensure and preserve access to higher education and success for all students, particularly students of color, low-income students, and other historically underrepresented student populations. However, student access and success in higher education continue to be impacted by the effects of structural racism and systemic poverty. Achievement gaps among student groups reflect structural inequities that are often the result of historic and systemic social injustices. These inequities typically manifest themselves as the unintended or indirect consequences of unexamined institutional or social policies.

Achieving the Dream believes that access to a high-quality education in an inclusive environment is the right of all individuals and imperative for the continued advancement of a strong democracy and workforce. Achieving the Dream also believes higher education institutions have an obligation to work toward equity for their students. Equity is grounded in the principle of fairness. In higher education, equity refers to ensuring that each student receives what they need to be successful through the intentional design of the college experience.

Achieving the Dream expects colleges to dismantle the barriers facing underserved students. Colleges must routinely scrutinize structural barriers to equity and invest in equity-minded policies, practices, and behaviors that lead to success for all students.
