Collaborative Event with Northern NY Library Network – Successful Approaches to College Transitions
March 26 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm EDT
Research supports a consistently strong relationship between academic preparation and college readiness. Consequently, the role of high school educators in preparing students for college is especially significant with regard to their transition during the first year.
This session is intended to help secondary educators better understand the various academic, social, psychological, and physical needs of students in preparing for that transition from high school to college. In this session we will discuss research related to college readiness, information relevant for instructional leaders specific to addressing readiness needs and preparing students for the transition to college, and programs that partner high schools with colleges to address readiness needs.
Participants will gain increased awareness of stresses students face from pressures related to college transition and what readiness looks like, as well as gaps that may exist between high school education and college demands.
Registration deadline is March 12, 2019. There is no charge to attend.
