Community College Program Consultant

    We are currently investigating options for restructuring our academic ESL program at our urban community college and the administration would like to hire a consultant to assist us.  We are an academic program and currently have four levels with a reading/speaking and a writing/grammar course at each level. We have a beginning level continuing ed program which allows students to transition into our academic program. We are considering moving away from the traditional 15-week semester and designing 8-week modules that will allow some students to accelerate and others who need more time to progress through the program more slowly.

    Can anyone recommend someone who is familiar with community college academic ESL programs and who would be willing to serve as our consultant? Additionally, if anyone can share information about community college academic programs that utilize the module approach, that would be helpful as well.  Any information would be appreciated.

    I know that the University of Utah's ELI program uses an 8-week module program.  Someone there may be able to direct you.
