The Student Support Team as a Professional Learning Community.
DuFour, Richard; Guidice, Aida; Magee, Deborah; Martin, Patricia; Zivkovic, Barbara
This chapter discusses three emerging national trends that could serve as catalysts for fundamental change in student services programs. First is the concept of the learning organization, which offers a superior model for enhancing the effectiveness of institutions and the people within them. Second is the movement away from standardization and uniformity toward greater personalization and individualization of services in both the private and public sectors. Third is the pervasiveness and power of technology and its effect on standard operating procedures in all areas of life. The authors maintain that if student services programs learn to function as a critical component of a learning organization, if they focus on providing more personalized services, and if they capitalize on the potential of more technology, they will undergo significant changes between now and 2021.
