Abstract

This forum piece discusses the relevance of insights from the field of developmental education in terms of the disruption of face-to-face learning and the important implications on the notions of college readiness for those whose educational experiences have been altered unexpectedly. The concept of college readiness, now more than ever, should be reconceptualized as student readiness. We provide four insights from the well-established field of developmental education to help guide institutions in their responses to these unprecedented life circumstances for students.
