The American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF), a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional development organization based in Washington, DC, provides learning opportunities for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers working on youth and education issues at the national, state, and local levels.
As we strive to create an education system that is responsive to the needs of all, we must foster pathways that afford students the opportunity to move through secondary and postsecondary education at an individualized pace that meets their academic needs. Accelerated learning serves as a promising tool to provide such opportunities to students. This webinar will discuss the CCRS Center’s recent brief, Understanding Accelerated Learning Across Secondary and Postsecondary Education and will feature a description of the categories of accelerated learning developed in the brief and presentations from programs profiled.
Speakers include Joe Harris, Director, College and Career Readiness and Success Center at AIR; Jennifer Brown Lerner, Senior Director, American Youth Policy Forum; Melinda Mechur Karp, Senior Research Associate, Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University; Louisa Erickson, Program Administrator, Basic Skills, Washington State Board for Technical and Community College; and Thomas Acampora, Field Manager, Center for Social Organization of Schools at Johns Hopkins University.
