General Information

Noncredit education is growing in California Community Colleges. Faculty, administration, and staff need resources to plan, develop and grow their services, instructional programs, and operations to support student success. This two-day conference will provide information related to best practices in instruction, student services, institutional effectiveness and research, and policy, finance, and administration.  San Diego Continuing Education will present the 2017 Noncredit Report findings during a general session on the first day. During team time, colleges will have the opportunity to discuss an optimal organizational structure appropriate for their individual cultures. 
Both days include breakfast and lunch, and a welcome reception follows the first day’s program.

General Information

This 4-hour post-conference workshop will be held on the final day of the Strengthening Student Success Conference. Lunch is included.
 
Disaggregating data is a powerful step toward equitable outcomes, revealing differential effects among student populations. However, students have complex lives; their identities don’t fit neatly into one box or another. Students wouldn’t describe themselves solely by one demographic characteristic; ethnicity, gender, age, and program of study are all part of who they are. Deeper analysis of student data through multivariate analysis can provide a way to understand patterns of need and program effect among sub-populations such as men of color, older returning veterans, and Latina women in STEM pathways. This workshop will cover data sources, data tools, methods of analysis, and story development. If you come to this workshop with your campus data, you can learn to create data-driven stories that reflect the complexity of our student populations and that address the need to monitor students' progress along their academic pathways.
 

Schedule/Registration/Cost

The workshops will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with check-in from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Registration is required through Eventbrite. There is a $75 per-person registration fee to attend. Registration includes lunch. Participants are responsible for travel and any parking costs.
 

Who Should Attend?

Cross-functional teams including practitioners and researchers interested in Data Disaggregation are encouraged.
