REAP holds trainings

The Adams State College Rural Education Access Program (REAP) conducted very successful on campus residency, orientation, and adjunct faculty training sessions in Alamosa the weekend of July 16-18.

Twenty nine students in the fall 2009 cohort group came to campus to complete final course requirements for three of their summer classes and also enjoyed a dinner in their honor with door prizes and loads of fun to complete their weekend of activities.

Twenty eight students in the incoming fall 2010 cohort group were on campus the same weekend for their orientation and to complete program requirements for entry into the ASC Professional Program in Elementary Education. Dr Donna Stout, chair of the Teacher Education Department, joined the group for dinner and shared words of wisdom, encouragement, and information as to expectations and requirements included in this distance-based Elementary Education program.

Fall 2010 and spring 2011 adjunct faculty members for REAP were also on hand to completing training and enjoyed a collaborative faculty community time for sharing and preparing for consistency in online delivery and program requirements. All REAP Faculty were able to address students with expectations and details for their upcoming courses, as well as answer pertinent course and state requirement questions.

The ASC REAP team responsible for the success of the weekend includes REAP Program Manager, Kateri Reeves; Student Advisor/Recruiter, Julia Chavez; and REAP Administrative Assistant, Bernadette Torres. Many thanks also go to Debbie Ehrlich and Berna Hostetter and her staff for their assistance in the success of the REAP on campus weekend of activities.
