Teaching and Learning

  • Develop an enhanced Basic Skills funding model that includes clear and expedited pathways for students tied to defined research-based benchmarks or “momentum points” leading up to and including completion.
  • Develop alternatives to traditional curriculum sequences using linked or contextualized curriculum across curricular areas.
  • Establish transfer associate degrees that guarantee admission to all four-year universities with junior standing, as part of a universal statewide articulation system.
  • Schedule classes in an inter-departmental manner with the goal of meeting the needs of first-time entering students, promoting full-time enrollment, and enhancing program completion.
  • Expand the awarding of credit for demonstrated competency and knowledge using multiple assessment instruments as determined by faculty.
  • Encourage (or require) faculty candidates to demonstrate knowledge of effective teaching and learning techniques, particularly in the basic skills subject areas.
