Event Details

Completions count! However, too few of our students actually complete essential course sequences, certificate programs, or degrees. Despite the large numbers of students we serve, private proprietary institutions grant more certificates than do the California Community Colleges.[i]

This 3CSN LINKS 3 event will highlight contextualized learning strategies that can benefit all students and help them successfully complete coursework. Participants will also learn how these high-leverage strategies can increase the number of students completing certificates and degrees, particularly in career-technical programs. Faculty and program leaders from the Career Ladders Project will review relevant research and data and discuss how smart program design and stackable certificates, along with contextualized approaches, can help more community college students earn credentials that qualify them to earn family-sustaining wages.

Particular attention will be paid to how faculty can work together to implement contextualized teaching and learning.

3CSN encourages colleges to bring teams with members from the areas of basic skills, general education, and career-technical education (CTE).
