2017 Conference on Acceleration in Developmental Education
Join us in the Rocky Mountains for the 2017 Conference on Acceleration in Developmental Education . The Community College of Baltimore County and the Accelerated Learning Program along with the Community College of Denver are hosts for CADE 2017! This year's conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Denver at The Colorado Convention Center on June 14-16, 2017. As in previous years, the conference will include sessions on developmental English, math, TESOL, and integrated reading/writing. Plenary speakers for CADE 2017 will be Dr. Luke Wood of CORA Learning on Thursday, June 15 and Professor of Mathematics Myra Snell, Los Medanos College on Friday, June 16!
What is acceleration? All across the country, colleges are delivering developmental education in exciting new ways. Peter Adams, at the Community College of Baltimore County, pioneered the Accelerated Learning Program, which allows students to take a credit class concurrently with a developmental writing class. We have seen student success--measured as passing the credit bearing class--more than double. Others are experimenting with streamlining sequences and giving students the skills they need in a college-level environment. This conference gives faculty and administrators a chance to hear about these approaches and to discuss ways to make these approaches more successful. We invite you to attend the conference which was described by one participant as "the most enjoyable and useful conference I have attended."
