"Advanced CAP" for graduates of the CAP Community of Practice

Program Overview
This is an advanced training program intended to support faculty to lead acceleration efforts on their own campuses, including providing professional development to their colleagues and developing new approaches to placement and remediation. Participants will serve as apprentice leaders in this year’s CAP community of practice. They will work with Katie Hern and Summer Serpas in English and Melissa Reeve and Jose Cortes in ESL to facilitate activities for participating faculty, observe the questions faculty ask and the kinds of activities that help them, share the work they’ve done on their campuses, and develop materials for local trainings. 

Program Requirements
One faculty member per college is eligible to apply in each discipline (English/ESL). Participants will typically be full-time instructors. If more than one faculty member per discipline is interested, please email us to discuss who should attend. Participants must meet the following criteria:

  •  Have participated in a prior year of the CAP Community of Practice 
  •  Be already helping to lead local professional development for accelerated pedagogy and other reforms related to AB 705 compliance
  •  Be willing to prepare materials related to your local efforts & share your experience implementing new approaches (e.g., navigating local change, building support among colleagues and administration)
  •  Participate in conference calls to prepare for the institute 
  •  Be able to participate in the CAP Summer Institute for their cohort and arrive Thursday afternoon (the day before regular participating teams).
