Overview

Selected Models of Developmental Education Programs in Higher Education includes models that are based on defendable theories about how students grow and develop at all levels of the learning continuum. These models emphasize the theories and concepts that underlie developmental education as a field of practice and research with a theoretical foundation in developmental psychology and learning theory. The theory-based models consist of methods and techniques for implementing developmental education activities and ways of creating environments intended to improve developmental students' learning outcomes. These models include a rationale, a theory that justifies the models and an explanation of how the models are designed. The rationale is supported by empirical evidence that the models work. These models were selected because they represent varied frames of reference toward educational goals and objectives. Therefore, this book is a valuable resource for scholars, researchers, educators, and practitioners seeking to improve developmental students' learning outcomes in developmental education programs, in institutions of higher education.
