    Contextualized Learning

    How often have you heard an instructor say, "How did these students not learn to read in previous classes?!"  Application of skills from one course to another, especially another discipline, can be very difficult.  Contextualization provides students the opportunity to implement reading skills in relevant, meaningful projects and/or activities that can be applied to subsequent coursework in other disciplines and in students' personal lives.  This webinar will provide some ideas for contextualized project/problem-based learning that provides students the chance to make decisions about what they read, how to approach reading a variety of text for a variety of purposes, and how to apply new knowledge to real world problems.  

    Presenter:  Dr. Mary Zimmerer, Reading Faculty; Chair, Composition, Creative Writing, and Literature Division; Chandler-Gilbert Community College

    Developmental Education: Professionalism, Politics, and Practice

    Dr. D. Patrick Saxon will be speaking about political advocacy in developmental education. These are times of change, reform, redesign, and in some cases, a push for the elimination of developmental education. Professionals need to be prepared to discuss, advocate for, and defend what works and debunk that which is harmful in our practice - in the spirit of upholding academic standards and supporting student success. This presentation will cover effective means and messages for voicing our vision of the field. Suggestions for what to say, how to say it, and to whom to speak will be discussed.
