Student Engagement

This webinar will explore the various ways community college systems and campuses are scaling student engagement opportunities as part of the completion agenda. The panel will consist of a system representative who will share how scaling of the high impact practices, data collection, and quality assurance is accomplished across multiple institutions and two institutional representatives who will share examples of how specific peer mentor and student leadership programs are implemented. Specific attention will be given to how student learning outcomes, student participation, and engagement can be assessed to identify whether the activity is truly high impact.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Participants will gain an understanding of how student engagement activities can be scaled across multiple site locations.

2. Participants will gain an understanding of how student participation can be tracked and assessed for impact.

3. Participants will gain an understanding of how co-curricular activities can have associated learning outcomes that connect with academic learning outcomes.
