Transitional Foundations is designed to help students work on 21st century skills for success in college and beyond.
In Transitional Foundations, students are encouraged to draw on the previous learning and experiences to prepare for upper division work. Students work in teams on problems that mirror real-life challenges and they hone communication and information literacy skills that will help them succeed in their major courses. Finally, students begin constructing their ePortfolio — a collection of the student’s work that illustrates the connection between their educational outcomes and the skills employers and graduate programs are seeking. When students master the eleven Learning Outcomes, they will be able to demonstrate the ways their undergraduate learning has prepared them for the challenges and opportunities that await them “Beyond the Blue.”
