The Heart of Student Success: Teaching, Learning, and College Completion. 2010 Findings
Center for Community College Student Engagement
This year, the Center for Community College Student Engagement focuses its national report on college completion--and the teaching and learning that must be the foundation for high-quality certificates and degrees. Effective teaching and meaningful learning: They are the heart of student success. This report describes four key strategies to promote the strengthened classroom experiences that ultimately are requisite to both increased levels of college completion and deeper levels of learning. In this report, the term "classroom experiences" refers to any activity that takes place as part of a regularly scheduled course. The key strategies are: (1) Strengthen classroom engagement; (2) Integrate student support into learning experiences; (3) Expand professional development focused on engaging students; and (4) Focus institutional policies on creating the conditions for learning. Using data from its three surveys--the Community College Survey of Student Engagement ("CCSSE"), the Survey of Entering Student Engagement ("SENSE"), and the Community College Faculty Survey of Student Engagement ("CCFSSE")--the Center explores the challenges associated with college completion and how these strategies address them. (Contains 16 endnotes.) [For "The Heart of Student Success: Teaching, Learning, and College Completion. 2010 Findings. Executive Summary," see ED526363.]
