Pedagogical and Institutional Practices To Advance Student Achievement. Briefing Papers.
In conjunction with the preparation of the second draft of the National Panel report of the Greater Expectations National Panel, a panel of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, this paper presents lists of promising practices for higher education change. The first section contains lists of pedagogical and institutional practices to advance student achievement. Pedagogical practices include those that center on complex cognitive development, field-based learning, integrative learning, and assessment. Teaching practices that motivate and challenge students and institutional arrangements to advance achievement are outlined. Section 2 contains a list of pedagogical and institutional practices to advance student achievement in chart form, linked to outcomes from the National Panels draft report. These focus on the learner who is enabled, informed, and responsible. Section 3 contains some suggestions of pedagogical and institutional practices from sources close to Greater Expectations, including the Greater Expectations Project on Accreditation and Assessment and a selection from "General Education: The Changing Agenda" by Jerry Gaff, published in 199 by the Association of American Colleges and Universities.
