Get your creative juices flowing with a fast-paced tour of both emerging and established models for summer programming that will help students prepare for a successful start to the 2021-22 academic year. We'll explore community-based, STEM-focused programming, secondary and postsecondary partnerships, supporting TRIO students, and an FYE (first-year experience) initiative.
'Remediation’ requires acceptance of a very particular model of knowledge-acquisition and mastery, coupled with a set of policy assumptions around the pace at which that model plays out among our student populations.

To highlight how members shape our cyclical development priorities, we launched the WHY (We Heard You) initiative. WHY communications highlight significant function and feature updates, with an emphasis on what these improvements mean to you and your students.
