Rhode Island Higher Education and Business Leader Perspectives on Preparing Students for College and Career

This pair of new Student-Centered Learning publications presents findings from interviews with Rhode Island higher education and business leaders. The interviews were designed to assess how student-centered learning -- learning that is personalized, competency-based, can happen anytime and anywhere, and allows students to take ownership over their own learning -- is helping (or could help) prepare students for success in college and careers. 

The Rhode Island Alliance for College and Career Readiness: Promoting a Better Future for All Students

Attendees included students, parents, teachers, policymakers, community, higher education, and business leaders.
