As I have shared previously through this blog, I lead a team of volunteers working to identify best education practices for TRiO and GEAR UP federal grant programs. These programs focus on assisting first-generation college, poor, and historically-underrepresented students complete high school and college. It is called the MAEOPP Best Education Practices Center. It is cosponsored by the Department of Postsecondary Teaching and Learning at the University of Minnesota and the Mid-American Association of Education Opportunity Program Personnel. To help highlight the MAEOPP Center through this web page I have added a new tab to the top menu bar, "Best Practices." The web page displays my thoughts about best education practices and then provides web links to the MAEOPP Center web site.
We are beginning to post best education practices to the MAEOPP Center web site that have been approved through an external expert panel. The practices range in age from middle school through college. As new ones are approved, they will be posted to the web site. Each submission will be complete enough to provide basic information about it and how to implement. Contact information is provided so you can follow up with the developers to talk more.
