Accommodations for the COVID-19 pandemic have converted what was long considered a problem that only accrued to an at-risk subgroup of learners into a problem that affects literally every student—problems of transfer, progression, and readiness are now universal issues.
More than ever, educators are considering how to normalize and institutionalize the process of giving every learner the opportunity to ascertain readiness in key areas and continuously revisit and strengthen core skills. With appropriate technological supports, this just-in-time approach can be skillfully deployed and readily scaled to radically improve student engagement, persistence, and success.
NROC President Dr. Ahrash N. Bissell facilitates a conversation with education thought leaders and secondary and postsecondary practitioners who weigh in on the strategies and tools that can help us meet learners where they are, now and into the uncertain future.
