Spotlight Session: Going from More to Most: Bringing Innovation to Scale for inclusion

An $18 million effort led by MDC and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Lumina Foundation, the Developmental Education Initiative (DEI) is scaling up innovations piloted in Achieving the Dream Colleges and States. Fifteen DEI colleges and six DEI states are scaling up policies and practices that can generate improvements for more developmental education students. Lessons learned from DEI are already making their way through the ATD Network and beyond. The workshop will provide an introduction to DEI and More to Most, a new guidebook for scaling up effective practices at community colleges that features the SCALERS model, seven organizational capacities that institutions can deploy to successfully expand programs. Participants will learn how Guilford Technical Community College has applied these principles to DEI work on its campus, as well as how Jackson Community College has implemented the More to Most process to design a scaling plan for ATD interventions.
