Discussion Item One – Phase 1 A Placeholder for text Discussion Item Two – Phase 2 A Placeholder for text Discussion Item Three – Phase 3 A Placeholder for text Presentation Overview The Future of California Community College Education Math Faculty Inquiry Teams Innovative Partner Opportunities
AACC – 21 st Century Commission on the Future of Community Colleges Reclaiming the American Dream Redesign the students educational experience Reinvent institutional roles Reset the system
Redesign Student’s Educational Experiences College Preparedness: The future will require community colleges to work more closely with K-12 to align expectations, curriculum and to create clear pathways. LB College Promise Completion: The future will require that community colleges dramatically increase completion rates. Expect that $$ will be tied to outcomes – get ready now. SB 1456 requires the establishment of a scorecard which sets in motion outcomes funding. Close the skills gap. Latino’s, African Americans, first generation students – we must do better for our future.
Reinvent Institutional Roles Refocus the community college mission Collaboration: Among colleges, universities and with philanthropy, government and private sector. Lumina, Gates, Department of Labor, White House Initiative on Excellence in Education, Goldman Sachs, etc. Student Success Task Force Recommendations
Reset the System Funding: The levels and how we are funded will change. Outcomes will be incorporated both at state and federal level. Student Support: State aid will include incentives for making academic progress Transparency & Accreditation: More reliance on data to demonstrate outcomes. More public information to inform consumers of higher education
Innovation Basic Skills/Developmental Ed CTE Certification Khan Academy Model – Flipping the Classroom Placement: Alternative Methods: LBCC Alternative Placement Model
Crystal Ball Funding will be tied to outcomes – get ready! More accountability Mandated collaboration with K-12 and CSU. More of the SB 1440 model Economic and workforce development – Its about jobs not Big Bird
Background and Overview of the Project Part of LACCD’s Achieving the Dream initiative Engage Faculty (and Chairs) Leverage Institutional Research and Information Technology Use Data to Improve Student Success Analyze Cohorts and Pathways Impact of Exit Points Impact of “3 strikes rule” on colleges Evaluate Student Success Interventions District office as catalyst for faculty team collaboration, including Led by District Math Council Involved the Academic Senate College math departments and Student Success teams State-wide 3CSN, hosted by LACCD Related resources and expertise Tom Carey, San Diego State University
Math Faculty Inquiry Teams Target Outcomes (from LACCD Math Summit, May ) Analysis of data on student success in Developmental Math (Algebra) Identify requirements critical to improving student success Design intervention strategies: new or modified pathways and courses, class scheduling, support services, etc. Schedule pilot offerings in Spring 2013 Analysis of Spring 2013 results and plans to revise/extend/scale up
Math Faculty Inquiry Teams (continued) Each college has a “refrigerator door” in our shared online workspace Each team member follows progress and provides feedback for other colleges Over time, new online boards emerge for topics of shared interest We will move to a more powerful platform (with potential as 3CSN regional network) We also plan to collect exemplary classroom practices and learning resources
The Way Forward Spring 2013 Launch the pilots (compressed and accelerated pathways) Documentation of Efforts Repository of Adaptations/Case Studies Achieving the Dream Reports Fall 2013 Math Faculty Teaching & Learning Academy Submit presentation proposals AMATYC, CMC3, and MAA (Math Conferences) Strengthening Student Success Conference AtD DREAM Institute
California Community Colleges Today 112 Community Colleges, each usually acting as a stand-alone purveyor of programs Routine duplication of programs and services within Districts and regions Incentive to add centers and colleges instead of sharing resources and programs Community need for college is still based on face- to-face classrooms and 30 mile driving model Innovative Partner Opportunities
Innovative Partner Opportunities (continued) Wisconsin Experience Northcentral Technical College (NTC) – 6,000 square mile region in Wausau, WI NTC – a primary campus and 4 regional sites 16 community colleges state-wide system BadgerNet used to connect high schools, technical colleges, and University of WI Centers Partnering was encouraged and expected Example of Partnering: Dental Hygiene partnership between multiple colleges and two states
Innovative Partner Opportunities (continued) Santa Rosa Junior College Partnering Options Programs: Paralegal and Psych Tech Partner Institutions Involved: Sonoma Statue University (SSU), Napa Valley College (NVC), SRJC Genesis: SSU discontinued its paralegal program NVC and SRJC had some elements of a paralegal program Due to budget constraints, adding new programs for either community college was difficult NVC and SRJC had full Psych Tech programs but, due to retirements at SRJC and downturn in hiring by local employer, an opportunity to eliminate program presented itself NVC had several full time faculty in Psych Tech and local employer still hiring Solution: SRJC eliminated Psych Tech program and referred all interested students to NVC NVC maintained the relationship with local employer for a greatly reduced hiring and internship program, still meeting all regional needs for Psych Techs NVC eliminated its Paralegal program and referred all students to SRJC SRJC hired adjunct faculty from SSU to teach the Paralegal Studies program
Innovative Partner Opportunities (continued) Programs:Respiratory Therapy Partner Institutions Involved: SRJC, Napa Valley College (NVC) Genesis:Too few students to support an ongoing program Solution:All prerequisites taken at SRJC Lectures are via real time interactive television from Napa Valley College and viewed at SRJC Lab assistant who is a respiratory therapist present in the interactive smart room Labs are at Napa Valley College Clinicals are done at local hospitals
Innovative Partner Opportunities (continued) Programs: EMC: Advanced EMT Partner Institutions involved: SRJC, Mendocino ROP, possibly Mendocino Community College Genesis: Sonoma and Mendocino counties have large rural areas supported by volunteer first responders. One way to improve ALS coverage is to train EMTs to the Advanced level. Advanced EMT (AEMT) training is expensive. Mendocino County had a Paramedic training program but discontinued it due to cost. With the loss of the Paramedic program in Mendocino, the ability to provide structure and support for an AEMT training program was lost. SRJC was looking for ways to better serve the training needs of EMS providers from the northern CA counties that could not provide for their own training needs. Solution: SRJC developed a hybrid online course for AEMT Mendocino ROP and Mendocino College will offer and support the laboratory and clinical components of the course for Mendocino County residents. SRJC will offer and support the laboratory and clinical components of the course for Sonoma County residents. Students from both counties will enroll in the online component of the course through SRJC. Outcomes: By partnering, SRJC, Mendocino ROP and Mendocino College met the training needs for limited ALS EMS (AEMT) providers in rural areas while remaining within budgetary parameters.
Innovative Partner Opportunities (continued) Designing the Future Regionalization to cut costs and better serve students and communities Partnerships between community colleges, CSUs, private schools, K-12 and businesses are all options Use technology to bridge “distance” Don’t wait until it’s mandated Lead the charge!
