Making Sense of the Co-Requisite Model
presented by Mike Hill
Fall semester will bring major changes to learning support. The current self-paced curriculum will be replaced by the co-requisite model which pairs learning support classes with college level courses, so that students begin earning college credit within their first semester. This session will provide an in-depth look at learning support co-requisites in all three academic areas (English, math, and reading) and suggest ways that the Learning Centers can provide the necessary support for making this initial semester a success for you and your learning support students.
Open Educational Resources: Practical Solutions for Persistent Problems
presented by Robert Benson
Great textbooks are essential to student learning but can be expensive, and students sometimes don’t come prepared with the required text. Teachers can get frustrated with the quality of the materials they are using or feel limited by the structure of the publisher-provided text. This session introduces Open Educational Resources (OER) as one possible remedy for some of these frustrations and as a resource for more personalized learning. This session provides an introduction to OER concepts, Creative Commons licensing and practical advice for faculty ready to explore the use of OER in their classes.
