  13. AdultSuccessCoach.Org Campus Specific Resources for each Student General Resources Across the Program

  14. Program Goals • Increase Persistence via Online Coaching • Help students create Success Plans, identifying academic and career goals; clarifying avenues to achieve goals • Help adult learners navigate the world of Higher Education

  15. Framework for coaching The Model of Strategic Learning(WEINSTEIN, C.E.) • Skill • Will • Self Regulation • ACADEMIC ENVIRONMENT Based on sound theory and researchto ensure consistent service

  16. Essential component Goal setting must come first! S.M.A.R.T. Goals (Students must begin articulating their OWN goals in order for coaching sessions to cultivate committed actions vs. compliance.)

  17. Coaching strategy One process that generates committed action toward goal achievement: G.R.O.W.(Alan Fine with Rebecca R. Merrill, You Already Know How to Be Great) “The best way to give advice is to find out what someone intends to do and then advise them to do it.” Harry Truman

  18. On-ground TLC 001-01) I would really appreciate having my own Academic Coach who could help me make a plan for raising my grade point average. I work best when I have someone to check in with periodically to stay on track. I would like to explore all of my options and have a personalized approach to reaching my academic goals. I do well when I’m made aware of supports and services that will enhance my success. It would be nice to have someone who can teach me new strategies when I need extra help. I would prefer working one on one. Best choice: TLC 001-Academic Coaching (Option 1-In person)

  19. On-line TLC 001-C01) The description above is true for me too, but spending extra time on campus is extremely difficult. I have so many other responsibilities at home and at work that adding one more trip to meet with an Academic Coach in person would be too much. I would like to have the one on one support to do well in college and reach my goals. Best choice: TLC 001-Academic Coaching (Option 2-On-line Success Coaching)

  20. Student populations that have found success with on-line coaching at CCSU: • Adult and Returning Students (The original target) • Commuter Students • Part-Time Students • Transfer Students • Traditional age students with “adult-like” responsibilities

  21. On-ground vs On-line

  22. AdultSuccessCoach.Org • Lessons Learned • Replicating an existing on campus programwas most effective • Acquire and Maintain Support from Leadership • Ownership and Alignment with Existing Programs • Provide Coaching as a Targeted Solution • Coaching must be clearly defined

  23. Future Considerations Pairing Coaching with other on-line offerings • E-tutoring, on-line courses, online advising, on-line financial aid processes Coaching prior to start of a semester • Orientation, summer bridge programs, post advising of predicted high risk students Welcoming New Institutions • College of Charleston
