with Andy Nash


Online registration unavailable

Registration for this course is open only to groups of 8 people or more. Please contact us at to set up a session for your group/organization.

Individual registration is not available at this time.

When you focus on helping students stay in programs, you address all the ingredients of program quality and effective instruction. Student persistence is, in fact, an indicator of program strength. In this course, you will use the six core “drivers” of persistence, identified in the New England Learner Persistence Project, to organize and review a wide range of successful persistence strategies, and to prioritize the ones that might have the most impact in your own program.

Read a blog post about one participant’s experience applying some of what she learned in this course in her own program.

“This is one of the best courses I have ever taken! It gave me exactly what I needed in a way that made it possible for me to reflect on my own work and situation. As I read the texts I got a lot of ideas that I will implement in my program, and that I know will benefit my students.” Elisabeth Goodwin, Distance Learning Instructor, Pima Community College, Adult Basic Education for College & Career, Tucson, Arizona

Estimated Completion Time: 3-4 hrs/week (24 hours total)
