Lundell, Dana Britt, Ed.; Higbee, Jeanne L., Ed.
In 2001, a group of 25 national and regional leaders in the field of developmental education met in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for the second Meeting on Future Directions in Developmental Education. The meeting was co-sponsored by General College (GC) and the Center for Research on Developmental Education and Urban Literacy (CRDEUL) at the University of Minnesota--Twin Cities. The primary goal of the meeting was to advance key themes from the first meeting into a more focused set of recommendations with a framework for creating action plans. Four major themes were established: (1) Future Directions for Research; (2) Future Models, Best Practices, and Alternative Delivery Systems; (3) Shaping National and Local Policy for the Future; and (4) Community Partnerships, Collaboration, and Civic Engagement. This document summarizes the conversations from home groups, which consisted of two co-leaders and four or five other participants who were collectively responsible for establishing a framework for discussion. Group members then presented summaries of their conversations. This monograph offers five summaries on topics ranging from best practices to shaping policy. Each summary includes references. Monograph also contains a bibliography pertaining to each summary, and a general bibliography, for a total of 130 references. (NB)
