Course Descriptions

Communication, Engagement and Student Success Concentration

Helping Non-Traditional Students Succeed

In this course, participants will learn about early intervention strategies, instructional flexibility, differentiated instruction, and instructor support while at the same time coming to a better understanding about how to meet the needs of non-traditional students in order to implement better systems and pedagogical techniques to help them succeed and graduate in college. Participants will explore intervention strategies such as providing early remediation to reduce students anxieties, fears, and chances of dropping out. The course will also cover how instructors can deliver the necessary skills that can get non-traditional students into the workforce faster. Participants will also learn how to move away from traditional didactic instruction and instead facilitate student empowerment within the classroom. A key component of the course will focus on how instructors can create a strong personal connection with non-traditional students and be flexible to meet learners where they are.

Learning Outcomes:

Those who complete the course should be able to:

  • Implement teaching and learning practices that are known to meet the needs, deficits, and challenges of non-traditional students and by providing them with proper tools and strategies resulting in students staying in school, graduating, and becoming productive, skilled members of the workforce.

  • Implement teaching and learning practices that are known to facilitate student empowerment within the classroom through differentiated instruction.
  • Critically reflect on how their time management behaviors, stress factors, and coping strategies shape their teaching practice and take these into account when designing and teaching non-traditional students.

Innovative Strategies to Engage All Students

While many students live in a technologically-rich environment, not all have equal access. This may be due to a variety of reasons; accessibility issues, socio-economic status, and/or cultural background.  Global learning, collaborative problem solving, and critical thinking are just a few of the demands that are expected from today’s students. Being an educator having innovative strategies to reach and teach all students.

  • Formulate inclusive student feedback that addresses higher learning level outcomes, in addition to skill level learning

Applying Universal Design for Learning Principles to Your Course

The course will first introduce learners to the overall theory of UDL and will reflect on how each has different experiences and learning strategies that they bring to the course. They will then be introduced to the benefits of accessible content and how it promotes student success. Learners will see how UDL offers insight for more effective teaching and learning and is much more than issues of accessibility. The introduction will be followed by three in-depth modules that will each review one of the three principles of UDL and their corresponding guidelines. Within each module, learners will focus on improving their courses by providing multiple means of representations, action and expression, and engagement through guidelines focusing on taking advantage of recognition, strategic, and affective networks to improve student success across a diverse set of students from various backgrounds and experiences. The course will culminate in learners reflecting on their experience and sharing their success with the strategies while developing a presentation demonstrating how they effectively implemented UDL strategies to improve their teaching to be shared within their colleagues, both in their course and at the institution.

Learning Outcomes:
