Overview of Webinar

Parkland College 's Center for Academic Success (CAS) provides leadership
and support for developmental education programs through a unique
integration of academic and student support services.  Pam Lau, CAS
director, will describe how the CAS has worked closely with developmental
faculty in academic programs and student services units to develop a
comprehensive network of walk-in learning assistance services, alternative
approaches to completing developmental coursework requirements, and
"intrusive" academic advising and student development support.  With strong
institutional support, it draws upon the expertise of faculty, learning
assistance and student development professionals to tutor, develop new
curriculum, field-test pilots in alternative delivery methods, and guide
underprepared students to college-level success.  Recently, the CAS was
selected as one of eight exemplary communi ty college programs across the
nation to participate in a case-study for Community Colleges Can! This is
part of a national initiative commissioned by the U.S. Department of
Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education (OVAE).
