Workshop Focus:

Don’t Compromise: Strategies for Building Quality Partnerships that Lead to Quality Dual Enrollment Instruction

Quality dual enrollment programs begin with strong partnerships between college faculty and the instructors—adjunct, part-time, and high school—who deliver course content. Building those partnerships, though, can be a challenge. From stereotypes to time constraints, a variety of factors can compromise instruction and lead to poor learning experiences for students and poor teaching experiences for instructors. However, universities that build quality professional development activities for dual enrollment instructors see their efforts paying off: student learning improves and instructors feel supported and energized by participating in these collaborative endeavors.

This workshop provides specific, practical examples of professional development activities designed by college faculty to help prepare, motivate, and engage instructors who teach dual enrollment courses in the sciences and humanities. Included are strategies for initial training, bridging secondary-post secondary gaps, and assuring rigor within the dual enrollment place of instruction. Attendees will be invited to participate in the workshop’s hands-on activities where they will explore ideas for maintaining communication, calibrating grades, and creating a sense of community. Finally, a panel of dual enrollment instructors will share stories of their experiences of relationships built and lessons learned through high quality professional development opportunities. Included in this discussion will be a focus on how the best dual enrollment partnerships are about more than just content delivery.
