Francisco Narciso, Teacher Advisor
The presenter will discuss themes that emerge from various research articles regarding nontraditional student perceptions and implications towards transitioning to post-secondary education. The presenter will discuss the answers to the following questions: What are the cultural, instructional, and institutional needs of nontraditional students? Using Kurt Lewin's Force Field Analysis, what are the driving forces and restraining forces that support or prevent the changes that address the needs of nontraditional students? Using John Kotter's 8 Step Change Model, how can we implement change in post-secondary institutions that support nontraditional students?
