Join us for the first National Jam on Teaching Developmental Education! From February 16th-February 19th, developmental education faculty from across the country will converge online to discuss specific pedagogic issues relating to developmental education as part of Global Skills for College Completion (GSCC).

Join the conversation: REGISTER NOW!

What is a Jam? A jam is an online exchange, and like jamming in music, it is about riffing on themes. A group of people ‘speak’ together using written posts about a subject of importance to them, and the discussion is actively facilitated to deepen the exchange. One of the advantages of the Jam is that it is asynchronous, so that participants can come and go as their schedules permit–reading and commenting when they can.

The Jam Agenda: The Jam will take place from February 16, 3:00 pm EST to February 19, 3:00 pm EST, and each day there will be several discussion threads. Each thread will be launched by a GSCC faculty member and will focus on an element of the emerging GSCC developmental education pedagogy. The conversation becomes interesting as participants ‘riff’ on the topic, adding their own comments, questions and experiences.

The GSCC mantra is Generate, Synthesize, Curate, Communicate. The intention of the Jam is to engage hundreds of faculty in learning about, experiencing, and contributing to a new approach to developmental education pedagogy.

There is no cost to register, and you don’t need to be a computer genius to participate.

All the best,

The GSCC Team
