Tips for Successful Development and Delivery of an ICAPS Support Course



Thanks to all of our panelists who shared information in our latest ICAPS Support Webinar, Tips for Success in an ICAPS Support Course. Dan Deasy, College of DuPage; Joy Krispin, Elgin Community College, and Elizabeth McNulty, Elgin Community College all shared valuable insight into the success of their programs.

Elizabeth McNulty of Elgin Community College, shared tips for success in an ICAPS support course. “It’s important to build a relationship with the tech instructors. Feel comfortable going to them with questions or clarifications. I also think having consistency in teaching teams is important. It’s important a support course teacher is willing to sign on for several years because you get to know the program, you get to know the instructors in the tech program. It makes it so much easier if you can build a relationship and sustain it over time. Teachers need to be flexible. Flexibility is the key to this.”
