Creating a Culture of Student Success Through Transformational Learning

Presenter:  Dr. Daniel Apple, Pacific Crest


Through the Academy of Process Education, much research has occurred in how Transformational Learning occurs. There are a series of significant cultural issues in our educational system that produce reasons for which students are at a high risk coming into higher education. These risk factors are explored and discussed to help participants be aware and address these factors. Then, the research of cultural transformation is explored and why this transformation increases student success. Finally, participants examine practical models to create this culture within a course, program, or institution.

Coaching the Developmental Student:  Promoting Trust, Discipline, Follow-Through and Accountability

Presenters: 
Mary Haynes, LifeBound, Lead Trainer
Maureen Breeze, LifeBound, Director of Coaching and Training


Our recent recession has put even more pressure on those of us who work with developmental students and students themselves.  With high unemployment and college costs at an all-time high, we need to be as practical as we can with today’s students about how and what they learn and about how that learning is connected to their future course work, graduation, and their career and professional outcomes.  In this introductory one-day coaching class, we will explore how to help developmental students take responsibility for their learning, ask powerful questions, hold themselves accountable, learn to self-advocate, develop professional skills in and out of class, connect their developmental work to future college courses, and, finally, connect their developmental work to graduation and ultimately, to their career success no matter what field they pursue.  Students learn grit, persistence, and practical know-how through being coached—not by giving them the right answer or telling them what to do.  Students who become self-sufficient, graduate, and get career-path jobs know how to ultimately coach themselves--trusting their instincts, applying discipline, and following through--by learning from you as their coach.

Breakfast with Dr. Paul Nolting (ticketed event):  The State of Mathematics and Improvement Solutions

Paul Nolting
Enjoy this unique opportunity with mathematics instructor and study skills expert Dr.  Paul Nolting.  Breakfast will be on Friday, March 1, 8:00 a.m. – 9:15 a.m.

Mathematics’ success has come to the forefront of developmental education.  Colleges, universities and even state legislatures are trying to determine how to improve math success and decrease the number of required developmental math courses. There is now a national realization that mathematics curriculum needs to be redesigned along with the sequence of developmental math courses required for different majors. However, these changes must be validated and supported by improved placement procedures and in areas of learning support which can include tutoring, Peer Assistance Learning, Supplemental Instruction, Academic Coaches, math study skills, and test anxiety reduction.  There is no “silver bullet” for math success. Developmental math students need various support strategies. Thus, mathematics success has now become an institutional responsibility requiring cooperation from many areas outside the math department.  Dr. Nolting, a national mathematics expert, will lead the breakfast group through these suggested curricular changes and best learning support strategies to improve math success.  The group will leave with theoretical and practical knowledge on improving math success and the need for a national math summit.
