Institute #4 promoted integration of effective educational practices into pathways by:
- Encouraging contextualization of general education into program curriculum.
- Providing examples of effective applied learning and other engaging instructional practices.
- Discussing reimagined professional development experiences for faculty and student services with a strategic focus on pathways.
College teams reviewed current data on their students’ educational experiences and specified ways that they could use the data to improve current educational practices. Presenters and coaches highlighted effective practices that ensure that students in pathways are achieving defined program and general education learning outcomes. The curriculum and resources also enriched colleges’ efforts to build cultural competence in classrooms and equitable outcomes across all student groups.
