TCC’s Untapped Resource: GED Transition Program  

Carol Chenoweth, Bryan Hooper, Bret Hammond

High school diplomas are a stepping stone to higher education, employment, and increased earning potential. Yet, only 71% of Florida high school students graduate from traditional high schools, or earn a GED. Successful transition of GED students into credit programs has the propensity to boost TCC enrollment, strengthen TCC’s community partnerships, and ultimately serve a growing student population.  Learn how TCC can enhance GED students’ transition into college.

​Mathematical Hiccups in College Science Courses

Julie Hanowell, Mabry Gaboardi, Luke Andrew Nicholson

Students often face challenges in college level science courses due to deficits in certain math skills, specifically in dealing with measurement, fractions, decimals and percentages.  When students face these barriers in science course work, how can professors provide immediate support to refresh math skills in order for students to successfully learn the content of the science course?

“Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?” The Role of Attendance in Lecture Classes

We gathered information about the best management practices used by Tallahassee Community College fulltime faculty to promote student attendance. The data was collected from 128 full time faculty using Survey Monkey.  The survey focused on strategies to promote attendance and specifically addressed: effective and ineffective techniques, active learning techniques, administrative withdrawal policy, best management practices, mandatory policy debate and attendance policy suggestions.

 The Hard Truth About Soft Skills

 

Wednesday, February 27th

The Hard Truth About Soft Skills

Donna Francis-Clark, Dan Beugnet

Much attention has been given to the role of soft skills, such as professionalism, punctuality, attire, and communication skills, in the success of candidates for entry-level employment.  Reports from the Conference Board, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the College Board have argued that soft skills are every bit as important as technical skills in job seekers' success in securing and maintaining long-term employment.  This presentation will report on findings from surveys and interviews of area employers and TCC students.  These interviews reflect the perceptions of TCC students regarding the importance of soft skills and employers' impressions of the soft skills of TCC graduates.
