How does the LC dual enrollment model support students with executive function challenges?
The dual enrollment program includes dedicated time during the school day for students to meet with an onsite school liaison who ensures that students understand navigation within a digital environment. The liaison works closely with the students to clarify technical and procedural hurdles that students typically have to resolve on their own in college. They learn about the accessibility of the Learning Management System (LMS) (in this case, Canvas), as well as netiquette and online accommodations. Students learn how to participate in synchronous and asynchronous discussions and learn about the multiple affordances of online learning in supporting individual needs, such as frequent communication with instructor via digital means, interacting with an online learning community of peers, add-on tech-based applications, and other supports for time management, organization, and self-regulation.
