Supporting Student Learning through the Library, Peer Assisted Learning, and Noncredit

LINKS 9: ACADEMIC SUPPORT

3CSN: MISSION, THEORY OF CHANGE AND NETWORK BUILDING

Mission
Develop leaders in California community colleges who have the capacity to facilitate networks of faculty, staff, and students for curricular and institutional redesigns in support of increased student access, success, equity, and completion.

Theory of Change
If we provide training on networking and we use action research methodologies, community college professionals will transform their environments and identities to create communities of practice that will produce powerful learning and working across campuses. This will lead to greater student success.

Building Networks that Work
•Identifying a Shared Problem •Creating a Shared Vision of the Possible for Addressing It •Building a Sustained Community of Practitioners Focusing on This Problem

California Community Colleges’ Success Network

GOALS FOR THE DAY
By the end of LINKS 9, we hope to have accomplished the following: 1. Increase participants’ understanding of what each of these areas do (library, PAL, noncredit) to support student learning.

GOALS FOR THE DAY
2. Identify goals within each of these areas AND common goals that span all of them. What do we all have in common? 3. Create a plan to move forward together. How do we create a plan to move forward so that we can continue to work together and thinking interdependently rather than in silos?

GOALS FOR THE DAY
4. Scan what’s going on across the state and leverage/build on what people are doing to support students across the sectors. Situating what each sector is doing as part of a larger movement. Create a larger collective impact.

Who will I contact on my campus to explore this? (Librarian? Tutoring center director? Noncredit chair? VP of Instruction?, etc.)
