The College Academic Support Programs (CASP) Conference is an annual conference jointly sponsored by the Texas College Reading and Learning Association (TxCRLA), Texas Association for Developmental Education (TADE) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). The 2017 CASP Conference will be on October 22-24 at the San Luis Resort Spa and Conference Center in Galveston, Texas. San Jacinto College, Pasadena, Texas, is the site sponsor for CASP 2017, “Charting Pathways.”
CASP offers professionals in developmental education, learning frameworks/student success, and learning assistance programs an opportunity to stay abreast of current issues regarding research, best practices, state mandates, and classroom methodology. This conference committee welcomes proposals from learning assistance staff, faculty, teachers-in-preparation, graduate students, researchers, program administrators, and curriculum developers related to our conference theme, “Charting Pathways.” Proposal topics could include, but are not limited to, ways developmental education is currently charting new pathways within the state and our institutions, ways we are making pathways in developmental education easier for all students, and pathways that have been traveled and are still working for all our students.
