Adapting the ALP Model for Student and Institutional Needs
Sides, Meredith
NADE Digest, v9 n1 p27-29 Win 2016
With the increasing adoption of accelerated models of learning comes the necessary step of adapting these models to fit the unique needs of the student population at each individual institution. One such college adapted the ALP (Accelerated Learning Program) model and made specific changes to the target population, structure and scheduling, and faculty course loads and salary, all with the motivation of making the program work for the students' and institution's needs. The college discovered that the participating students had good success in their college-level course and had higher retention rates than those students who were eligible for, but did not participate in, the program.
