Description

As we strive to create an education system that is responsive to the needs of all, we must foster pathways that afford students the opportunity to move through secondary and postsecondary education at an individualized pace that meets their academic needs. Accelerated learning serves as a promising tool to provide such opportunities to students. This webinar will discuss the recent brief Understanding Accelerated Learning Across Secondary and Postsecondary Education featuring both a description of the categories of accelerated learning developed in the brief and presentations from program profiled. 

Speakers include Jennifer Brown Lerner, Senior Director, American Youth Policy Forum; Melinda Mechur Karp, Senior Research Associate, Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University; Louisa Erickson, Program Administrator, Basic Skills, Washington State Board for Technical and Community College; Thomas Acampora, Field Manager, Center for Social Organization of Schools at Johns Hopkins University; and Joe Harris, Director, College and Career Readiness and Success Center at AIR.
