Denise commented on Empathetic Persona Mapping

Audey Seawright 
 
Hey Audey, 

I left this persona as a comment on Hacking a Credential :

Beth is a forty-something year old woman, who has reached the pinnacle of her career and wants to return to school to complete her undergraduate degree. For the past 20 years, she has taken classes, such as Spanish and advanced Microsoft suite, to advance her job skills. However, she wants to go to college to complete a B.A. AND retrain in a new, marketable career.
+ Works full-time, is married and has a kid
+ Needs some type of financial assistance to leave job and cover some costs
+ Afraid of obliterating savings when she should be saving for her daughter's education
+ Has multiple college credits that are scattered and not necessarily applicable towards a degree

Denise commented on Multiple Pathway Higher Education

Hi Maha, I think that we're building on similar ideas; how do students find meaning in their coursework using case studies? Mills College, where I'm currently a student, is situated in an area of Oakland with higher than average poverty and crime levels. As a college that values social justice, I would love to see more opportunities for student ambassadorship, which in addition to forging a relationship with the local community could also improve visibility for college potential.
