How you can help underprepared students | Faculty Focus

Unfortunately, it is an all too common problem. Students arrive to campus unable to handle the rigors of college academics. Now you can learn to better identify and support these students, and put them on the path to success.

Introducing the Underprepared Student 2-Pack. 
This set includes Identifying Underprepared Students and Helping Underprepared Students. Both programs are part of a new Just-in-Time Learning series.

Identifying Underprepared Students helps faculty identify underprepared students and choose which strategies to implement to get them college-ready. This program allows you to unburden your students of the bad habits they acquired in high school, and give them a better chance for college success.

Helping Underprepared Students covers proven strategies not only for getting students to perform to your expectations, but also for fine-tuning your pedagogy to improve their chances for success. As a result of these strategies you can create a more satisfying classroom environment for them and you.
For a limited time, you can purchase both programs for the price of one.

About Just-in-Time Learning 
Engaging and interactive, each just-in-time learning program contains short units, enhanced by videos and learning activities, that help participants work both individually and collaboratively to improve their pedagogical practices. A facilitator’s guide, discussion questions, and a printable certificate of completion are also included.

The video for each unit is approximately 5-7 minutes in length. The topics focus on specific issues that impact classroom effectiveness and are designed to foster reflection and discussion among faculty.

Use a program in a small group setting, such as a department meeting, or make it accessible to large groups, such as new faculty orientation. Your purchase gives you access to the content for a full year, and you can share the program across your entire campus.
