SAVE THE DATE FOR
CTN VIRTUAL ASCENDER SPRING SEMINAR
Ascender’s Spring Seminar brings together scholar mentors, educators, advisors, counselors and trainers from across the state to discuss progress and challenges in the program and to share best practices in the classroom. Because of social distancing rules due to the Coronavirus, CTN is working toward providing a “flipped” model where attendees will be able to access some static course content by May 25 with follow-up webinars/virtual meetings occurring on May 27th (these would feature speakers, panels and group discussion to troubleshoot some of the issues we now face with recruitment, student retention and faculty training). More information will be forthcoming.
“This is a very important seminar for our Ascender familia as we plan for the future under a new reality, that being that online hybrid education may continue in the fall term as the country prepares for a second wave of the virus to hit our nation. With that said, how we adjust our teaching for our students to continue to be engaged and maintain a sense of belonging while dispersed across the state is key to our development as is the retention of current students and the recruitment of new students in the absence of TSI scores to review or high school visits to facilitate recruitment,” commented CEO Dr. Chavez
