Webinar for Submitting Promising and Practical Education Strategies
Friday, March 23, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (CDT)
A perfect opportunity has been created for your program to share promising and practical strategies to increase postsecondary success, transfer, and college graduation through the U.S. Department of Education. Please read further how you can share what works with your students and programs with your colleagues nationally. The priority review deadline for submission is April 30.
The Jandris Center for Innovative Higher Education (http://cehd.umn.edu/jandris/) based at the University of Minnesota has volunteered to provide a free hour-long webinar to share suggestions for completing a submission with examples from others that have already have or in process of completing their document.
The U.S. Department of Education announced at its College Completion Symposium and posted to the Federal Register on January 30, 2012 a Request for Information (RFI) for any person or organization to share with them strategies for increasing college completion that may then be made available through a special web site created by the Department. Submissions received by April 30, 2012 receive priority consideration for dissemination. Click on the following web link for the complete announcement published in the Federal Register, https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2012/01/30/2012-1963/promising-and-practical-strategies-to-increase-postsecondary-success#p-3
It is important in your proposal to stress the unique features of your activity or program. For example, while many schools have a tutoring or mentoring program, what is novel about yours? How are your credit-hour courses different than others? What evidence do you have that suggests these activities contribute to eventual college completion? These are some of the questions the RFI asks for the submissions to address.
