Series: Retention Through Redirection
Collection: Research Materials
The “Retention through Redirection” project extends the retention focus of the “What Works” project. The “Retention through Redirection” project is intended to further support Ontario colleges' retention efforts by building on the “What Works” project. The focus is on all Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) learners who remain in the program but continue to be at risk of failing or dropping out.
This report is the first part of a resource developed to provide LBS college practitioners with a redirection protocol to help them reflect on the elements of their programs that support student retention, both those that are working well and those that could be working better. The report provides a summary of the project which includes the rationale for it, the retention research, the process for gathering information, the key findings and the key recommendations.
