The ABE-DevEd Affinity Group was established in academic year 2020-21 and will continue in 2021-22, meeting via Zoom. The group consists of Minn State (Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system) faculty and staff, ABE teachers and administrators currently engaged in DevEd classroom partnerships, and educators with an interest to establish successful partnerships.
The group shares effective practices, including the creation of a partnership toolkit, and discusses topics of common interest. The intent of the collaborative work is to increase the quality and quantity of partnerships to improve Dev Ed student outcomes and help students to advance to credit-bearing courses in the most expedient fashion, having gained the confidence and competence to move forward with their higher education goals. This statewide effort is led and funded by the Northwest Transitions Region.
Note: The Affinity Group meeting schedule for 2021-22 includes 5 sessions starting in late September and ending in late April. Each of the five sessions offers two options (same topics) – one on Thursday from 2:00-3:15 pm and one on Friday from 10:00-11:15 am – as follows:
- Session One – Sep. 30 or Oct. 1
