Choosing and Using Your Education and Training for Career Value

How do you make the most of your expensive education -- your investment of time and money are both significant.  Recent research shows that advanced education, whether in community colleges or academic colleges benefit from student and teacher engagement -- and support programs.  But it really boils down to getting involved with learning.

The survey -- known as CCSSE (pronounced "Cessie") -- measures five categories linked to student engagement:
  • academic challenge
  • active and collaborative learning
  • student-faculty interaction
  • student effort
  • support for learners
High Expectations
The value of high expectations and high support is well documented. Most students do their best when the bar is high but within reach. Colleges must set the standard and do so deliberately, clearly, and consistently. They also must provide the support -- financial aid, advising, academic support, and so on -- that makes the high standard accessible to all students.
