Student Equity: Moving the Needle by Addressing the Non-Cognitive Domain

Community College League of California 2015 Annual Convention

Session Description:  Evidence suggests that closing the student equity gap will require addressing non-cognitive skills such as grit and persistence. However, without measuring the effects of affective interventions we cannot determine effective practices. This session will focus on academic and non-cognitive evidence of effective practices, and models of best practices from across the country.

 

Presenters:

Diego Navarro, Visiting Scholar, Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and Faculty on Sabbatical, Cabrillo College

Jonathan Brennan, PhD, EdD English Faculty, Mission College & Chair, On Course National Conference.

Addressing Student Equity: Measuring Affective Strengths to Support Student Success

Strengthening Student Success Conference

Strand: Capitalizing on Affective Strengths

room: Junior ballroom 1-2

Interest in non-cognitive skill building in higher education is growing. but what academic impact is this attention having on students, especially those who are underprepared for college? is there a lasting and long-term effect on student success by changing the trajectory of student’s non-cognitive skills? is there
a causal link? in this workshop we will explore these questions, focusing on research being conducted at multiple colleges assessing the predictive power of non-cognitive measures coupled with other measures, such as students’ high school transcripts and working styles. we will also discuss the incorporation of non- cognitive factors in the state-level discussions around multiple measures.

Strengthening Student Success Conference

Strand: civic engagement and Social Justice

room: occ 204

For students who have experienced trauma in their lives, whether in an educational or familial setting, social justice pedagogy (SJP) can increase their chances of academic success. a model of education utilized in the academy for college excellence (ace), SJP incorporates social justice survey research with accelerated academics to bring basic skills students to college-level success in one semester. in this interactive breakout, participants will learn about SJP and how to apply it in their classrooms. in ace, students come to recognize their life experiences as part of a larger historical context and begin to understand how issues in their lives are often the result of systemic injustices. in order to change the status quo, students become motivated to make a difference through the acquisition and creation of knowledge.
