What other Dual Credit topics should we feature? Comments/Suggestions?

Houston Community College: I especially liked knowing what other colleges in Texas are doing in dual credit

San Jacinto College Central Campus: Transferability issues - developing articulations with 4 year universities

Tarrant County College: Some high schools require college faculty to supply or input grades every three weeks. This does not truly provide the high school students with a true college experience.

Vernon College: How payment of a course works at one institution versus another. For example it was said that for Amarillo College it is only $40 a credit hr, how do you make this possible because my students must pay full tuition?

San Jacinto College Central Campus: Registration issues, cheating issues (cell phone use in class, etc.)

Lonestar: Registration process best practices, testing procedures, eligibility requirements

Collin College: Registration processes, grading processes

The Texas Network Wants To Promote Your Dual Credit Program

Dear Colleagues,

As The Texas Network begins a new project year, we are again reminded of the hundreds of high-quality professional development topics collected from partner community colleges and providers. The statewide interest this year is in learning more about successful dual credit education and instruction. THECB has underscored the effectiveness of The Texas Network’s past training work and outreach capabilities and has asked us to develop a suite of training modules focusing on “How To” develop and offer superior Dual Credit programs. 

In response to that, we are seeking acknowledged content experts to develop dual credit training modules and webinars. We are looking for experts who want to make it easy for college faculty, teachers, administrators, advisors, and counselors to sharpen their skills and keep up with the latest developments in dual credit education. 

The Texas Network offers content experts a stipend to help support the development of these training modules. Content experts interested in developing a module or webinar should contact Terry Stewart Mouchayleh (email: tstewart@austincc.edu) for more information. The Texas Network project coordinator, Renee Hernandez (email:  rhernandez@tccta.org) will work closely with content developers to design effective, visually appealing, and interactive modules, and webinars.  Selected modules will be distributed electronically through The Texas Network’s website and be available at no cost to community colleges in Texas.

Click here for more information on The Texas Network’s Dual Credit Project.

We look forward to hearing from you and sharing your success with dual credit!

The Network Users Geographically

As we write the grant application for 2011-12 fiscal year, I was asked to show whether Network users represented all 10 of the THECB's service regions.
Yesterday I found a really cool website that takes GPS data and displays it on an interactive map.
This is what I came up with when I uploaded the zip codes of Network users:

Click here to view map in a new window/tab
You can interact with this map just like a normal Google map [zoom, drag, etc.], if you click on a specific dot you'll see the # of members at that zip code.
[personal information was not linked to zip codes used for this map]

Engaging Your Students: A Few Simple Ideas

As part of its free, live webinar series, the Texas Network for Teaching Excellence (the Network) would like to invite you to a presentation entitled "Engaging Your Students: A Few Simple Ideas", scheduled for Wednesday, March 2nd from 2:00-3:00pm CST (check for local time).

Presented by Dr. Terry Stewart Mouchayleh, Director of Professional Development & Evaluation at Austin Community College and Project Director of the Network.


Most faculty would agree that getting all materials and information completed in one class period and one semester is almost impossible.  There is little or no time to teach students how to be successful college students in addition to teaching them important course content. However, taking simple steps before the class begins and few minutes per class period to give your students a “heads up” about the institution, their roles as students, and the support services available to them can make a huge difference in their personal and academic success.  This workshop will focus on the easiest and least distracting ways to remind students of things they already know (but have forgotten) or never even knew about.
