Webinar: "A New Model for Developmental Writing: The Accelerated Learning Program"

The Division of Interdisciplinary Programs invites you to a webinar: “A New Model for Developmental Writing: The Accelerated Learning Program,” on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 from 3:00-4:30 pm in 9-233.

The Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) is a co-requisite model that places developmental writers directly into credit English and then provides the developmental course concurrently. In addition, ALP triples the percentage of students who complete the second semester of credit English and has significant positive impact on retention in the following years.

“This webinar will introduce participants to the basics of Accelerated Learning Programs, providing a thorough understanding of the model and how its inception fits into the history of developmental education. Participants will also examine data on the outcomes of ALP at the Community College of Baltimore County, discuss why it works, and have a chance to ask questions about the model.”
