As students transition from a high school to a college/university setting, they are likely to encounter vastly different experiences. Too often, there is an expectation and preparation gap for students making this transition. At The Ohio State University, College Ready Ohio is working to bridge these gaps, connecting high school teachers and university faculty to work bidirectionally toward building a bridge for students in transition.

This session will highlight where some of these gaps exist, both culturally and pedagogically, and explore how collaborative efforts to build learning communities has improved teaching and learning at both the secondary and postsecondary levels in Ohio.
