Assessing High-Risk Courses

On November 13, Northwest Vista College Academic Success will host a charrette to address high risk courses from spring 2015. 

A charrette is often used in the planning process, and it provides a framework that allows participants to discuss a topic in a focused, brief, intense, and intentional way.

Faculty from disciplines in which we have high-risk courses will have the opportunity to meet and draw on each other’s expertise to share ideas and methods to address the needs of these courses. 

At the end of the charrette, we will have a collection of strategies that faculty will implement in each of the courses. In the spring, a second charrette will be planned to address academic rigor and will involve faculty from all disciplines. We are looking forward to the collaboration and innovation that we know will result from this session.
