Fostering Self-Determination in Higher Education: Identifying Evidence-Based Practices
Getzel, Elizabeth Evans
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v27 n4 p381-386 Win 2014
Research on the transition of students with disabilities and their post-school outcomes continues to move the field of special education in the direction of evidence-based practices. As special education professionals work to better recognize the impact of instructional and environmental characteristics to prepare youth for their transition, so must postsecondary education professionals. There is a need for a unified research agenda in the field of higher education and disability to conduct rigorous studies on evidence-based practices in the college environment that support self-determination and to identify evidence-based predicators that correlate with improved outcomes in retention, graduation, and further education or employment.
