Community College: Reform to Support Real-World Learning

To improve post-secondary educational programs, policymakers and institutional leaders need a better understanding of how educators set learning goals, measure student learning, and build capacity for educating a diverse range of adult learners. SRI has contributed to this agenda in two ways: By developing and testing new systems that help postsecondary educators measure real world learning, and by developing and testing online methods that help faculty adopt real world instructional materials and teaching practices. This work has spanned community college programs in developmental education, academic transfer, and workforce training.
