Event description


With AB705 on the horizon, and changes in CSU policies, the landscape for remediation is changing in California. And new approaches to placement and remediation are producing dramatic gains in student completion of transfer-level English and math.

This two-day workshop will support colleges to redesign remediation, including developing new placement policies, building co-requisite models of remediation, and teaching with high-challenge, high-support pedagogy.

This institute will provide:

  • An overview of the latest research on placement and co-requisite remediation
  • Nuts and bolts information on implementing placement reform and co-requisite remediation, with time for Q&A with faculty from early implementer colleges
  • Time to review data from your college and implement an action plan with support from CAP leaders
  • Hands-on activities that highlight high-support, high-challenge pedagogy for both math and English faculty

Intended Audience

This institute is intended for:

  • Disciplinary faculty in English/reading, ESL, and math who want to rethink their approach to placement and remediation for incoming students
  • A broader group of campus stakeholders who can build institutional support for change, including key members of the equity committee, counselors, people involved in assessment and placement, and administrators (department chairs, deans, vice-presidents)

We recommend that colleges send separate disciplinary teams in math and English/reading/ESL, with a minimum of three faculty per disciplinary team.

Team Leaders

We ask that each disciplinary team name a team leader on the registration form. This person will be the campus contact person for invoicing and will work with the campus Institutional Research office to produce the data required for the institute.

We ask all teams to share data on placement and remediation at their college (CAP Fall 2017 Data Template). Team leader(s) should work with the Institutional Research Office to complete templates for both English and math, even if only one disciplinary team is attending.

Please email your completed template to by October 20th.

Also, please bring hard copies or accessible electronic copies of the data for each team member to use during the institute.

We will be in touch with additional homework assignments as the institute approaches.

Important Information about Fees and Payment

The cost of the institute is $200 per person. This covers training, materials, and some meals during the two-day institute. Colleges or individual participants are responsible for the cost of their hotel room, transportation, and meals that are not included.

When you register, you can choose to pay by credit card on the Eventbrite site or pay by check. If you choose the "pay by check" option, your college will be sent one invoice for all unpaid registrations following the close of registration. The invoice will be emailed to the designated team leader by CAP's fiscal sponsor, The Foundation for California Community Colleges, and it is the team leader's responsibility to facilitate payment. Your college will have 30 days to remit payment for the invoiced registration fees.
