Developing Learning Power

The purpose of the Developing Learning Power (DLP) initiative is to foster in students the traits of a life-long learner and an ability to change and learn over time.   In spring 2013, Richland College piloted a Developing Learning Power initiative in selected History 1301 face-to-face classes and expanded the pilot to face-to-face History 1301 classes taught by all full-time faculty and 10 adjunct faculty in fall 2013.  Selected Learning Framework pilot classes were added in fall 2013 and will scale to all face-to-face sections of LF in fall 2014.  Participating faculty complete professional development for teaching thinking routines that facilitate the development of learning power.  Richland College scaled the Developing Learning Power initiative for courses selected from each tier of the core curriculum with an expansion pilot to English 1302 in spring 2014 and Government 2305 in fall 2014.  Instructional leadership designed this initiative to be cumulative and transformative.  Assessments of student learning outcomes commenced during the summer of 2014.  Richland College has also scaled Developing Learnin Power training to faculty outside of the study cohort to include volunteer faculty in disciplines such as Anthropology, Speech, and Psychology.
