Goals:
The goal of this course 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.

Description:
This course takes place entirely online and runs for four consecutive weeks, from 7/17/2018 to 8/13/2018. Weekly participation is required, though participants may, during a given week, log in whenever they wish. A kick-off Webinar will take place in the first week; the date and time will be announced and posted within the course.

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!

Participants who successfully complete this course will receive a certificate of participation (14 hours); they are also eligible to apply to CSUS for 1.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) if they wish.
