Enhancing Learner Persistence
What’s all the excitement surrounding the topic of learner persistence, how does it differ from student retention and motivation, and how do I encourage my students to persist in their learning? Based on research on factors that promote learner persistence, this workshop engages participants in brainstorming implications for changing practice in the four areas of intake, orientation, instruction, and program activities. Come see what all the excitement is about!
GOAL AND OBJECTIVES
The goal of this workshop is to provide an overview of current research on factors that contribute to learner persistence in adult literacy programs and to help participants identify program changes that can be made to enhance learner persistence.
