EDUC 6181 - Developmental Education: Theory and Practice♦


(3 sem. cr.) The need for developmental education in community colleges and 4-year institutions continues to grow, as does the need for developmental educators who are prepared to help this population of students achieve success. In this course, students examine developmental education from a historical perspective and will explore the theoretical frameworks, political and economic issues, and key research surrounding developmental education. Students also learn common organizational approaches to offering developmental education and the characteristics of developmental education student populations, courses, and programs.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
