Description

Case Study: The Implementation of a FYE Student Success Course at One Community College 30 September 2008 Online In addition to the typical issues inherent to all college students, the community college student often has additional challenges that must be addressed to persist and achieve academic success. One method to address these issues at the community college is the development of first-year experience courses similar to those found at many four-year institutions, but unique to the community college student. This presentation will focus on the development and implementation of a first- year experience course at one urban community college and the impact of that course on student success. Participants will: *discuss the history of first year experience seminars/courses at 2-year colleges *describe the benefits of implementing a first year experience course at the community college *explain the process used to develop the first year experience course at one community college *brainstorm methods to document student success for a first year experience course *share ideas for best practices Who should attend?
