Description

This workshop presents a new approach to post-secondary pedagogy referred to as, The Two Generation Classroom. The Two-Generation Classroom offers curricula for the general education core that facilitate parent/child inter-generational learning. Using hybrid online/in-person strategies, and a learning-buddy approach to integrated arts teaching/learning activities, the Two-Generation Classroom approach aims to address and reduce inequity in college access and success for student parents, while ensuring academic excellence and rigor.

Dr. Autumn R. Green is Founding Director of the National Center for Student Parent Programs, and is currently transitioning from Endicott College to join Wellesley Centers for Women as a Visiting Scholar beginning in January 2018. As Director of NCSPP Dr. Green oversaw the Keys to Degrees National Replication and flagship programs, helped to launch a Boston partnership with the Jeremiah Program, coordinated multiple research and program initiatives, and served as PI on the first Center for Best Practices to Support Single Parent Students in Higher Education grant through the US Department of Education, through which she also hosted the 2017 Student Parent Support Symposium. She is a recent co-recipient, with Dr. Amanda Freeman, of the Presidential Award from the Russell Sage Foundation toward publication of their book, tentatively titled, Surviving & Striving: Low-Income Mothers in Higher Education. She is also currently completing fieldwork on a second project, Student Parents on Campus, aimed at comprehensively documenting student parent programs and exploring historical and contemporary best practices. Dr. Green completed her undergraduate studies at Chemeketa Community College and University of Oregon, becoming a young mother of two during community college. Her daughters are now 16 and 18 and beginning their own college journeys. Autumn holds a Master's Degree in Education from Lesley University, and Master's and Doctoral degrees in Sociology from Boston College.
