The purpose of this book is to assist post-traditional students to achieve success in the Occupational, Workforce, and Leadership Studies (OWLS) Department and develop their individualized pathway to earn the interdisciplinary Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) degree at Texas State University. Applied baccalaureate degrees incorporate higher-order thinking skills and advanced technical knowledge and skills with applied coursework. BAAS students may also earn college-level credits through prior learning assessment (PLA), evaluating and credentialing knowledge and skills gained outside the classroom. The organization and content of this book provides adult degree program faculty and leaders an example of how one required textbook develops and supports the outcomes and activities in all the core courses of an interdisciplinary degree program designed for post-traditional adult learners. The majority of the students earning the BAAS degree are post-traditional students. They are often defined with some or all of these characteristics: over age 25 years old when starting or returning to college, may not have a traditional high school diploma, enroll part-time, work full-time, are financially independent, have dependents other than a spouse and may be a single parent. These students juggle multiple roles and responsibilities in the family, workplace, and community. Post-traditional students bring rich work/life experiences, may be experiencing personal and/or professional transitions, have clear career goals, and often finance their education. They seek flexible programs including online education, PLA, and accelerated course formats. Thus, post-traditional students want active, collaborative, and interactive learning relevant to career and other roles and goals.

This groundbreaking resource: Explores the elements of personalized learning and offers a framework to achieve it Provides a roadmap for enrolling relevant stakeholders to create a personalized learning vision and reimagine new roles and responsibilities Addresses needs and provides guidance specific to the job descriptions of various types of educators, administrators, and other staff This invaluable educational resource explores a simple framework for personalized learning: co-creation, feedback, sharing, and learning that is as powerful for a teacher to re-examine classroom practice as it is for a curriculum director to reexamine the structure of courses.

Practical guide for an effective personalized accompaniment of any student ... resilience in the academic performance of the learners in their care.
Author: Christian Bernard ILOGA
Publisher: Lulu Press, Inc
Mentoring pupils or students very often proves to be an arduous task even for the most initiated. This guide is intended for parents, teachers and trainers who want to see the academic performance of the learners in their care improve. Indeed, enrolling a child in school or even teaching him/her new notions is not enough for him/her to learn; it is also necessary that adequate follow-up accompanies the learner in the learning process in order to avoid problems of boredom, discouragement, indiscipline and especially dropping out (dropping out) of school. You will find useful information on the functioning of the brain and the memorization process, explanations on the origin of learning difficulties and methods of resilience. Bibliographical references are found at the end of the document. If reforms are desirable on the institutional level of the organisation of studies, the involvement of the coach/trainer, whatever the system in place, is essential. The latter has more power than he sometimes believes to help improve the learner's academic performance.
