As a Recruitment tool, we offer a Workshop -- "A.B.C. Seminar" ("Adults
Back-to College")...
During the session we share information on the application process;
financial aid
opportunities AND the application process; we have instructors available
to
talk 
about expectations; currently enrolled Non-traditional students talk
about
their experiences;
Student Services talk about "support" services available once enrolled
(FREE
Tutoring,
Counseling Services, Peer Mentors, etc) ...

Once enrolled I have developed an Orientation course (2 hrs. credit) --
just
for
Non-traditional students.  We address any issues/concerns they may have.
We
visit
"key" offices on campus -- to identify a "contact" person...  

I'm in Georgia!

Hi All:

 

No doubt this issue has come up on the list before so I'll check the
archives but I thought perhaps many of you might also be dealing with
the
same issues that we are.

 

With all the layoffs across the country (we're in Michigan) and the
number
of older students returning to college (and primarily community
colleges)
for retraining, we're finding ourselves becoming slightly overwhelmed by
the
learning issues (not to mention the affective ones) experienced by
non-traditional students.  Both faculty and our peer tutoring staff
mention
difficulties in learning, memory problems, and other issues.

 

I've been thinking about starting some workshops aimed particularly at
non-traditional students and I'm curious as to whether others might be
doing
these or if there are any other strategies or ideas out there aimed at
the
older student.  

 

Any thoughts, ideas or particular resources that any of you think might
be
helpful?  I know I'll be doing a lot of reading on andragogy over the
next
few months.

 

Kate
