Events > 2016 > August > Rethinking College Readiness: Promising Practices from NROC Member Community

About this event:

Created by Jill Somrock

As we consider the myriad ways college readiness can be approached and supported, we draw inspiration and direction from emerging models in the NROC member community.

During this back-to-school webinar, we will explore how NROC Math and English courses and EdReady are being employed to support multiple measures admissions policies, placement exam alternatives, high school bridge programs, and innovative adult education practices.

Guests from Central Piedmont Community College, Jacksonville State University, Tennessee SAILS, and OTAN will share first-hand experiences, and Dr. Gary Lopez will describe plans to grow academic partnerships in service to our mission of expanding access to high-quality educational opportunities.
