Why take the same course twice? Technical Dual credit allows students in high school to get credit at the community college level with the credit applied directly to their college transcript. Dual credit coursework aims at gaining a certificate and/or associates degree in a chosen field and can even work toward a bachelors of applied science degree. Learn how to help your students get the most out of their courses. Presented by Karen May, Assistant Division Chair for Business, Computer Information Technology and Public Service, Blinn College.

Texas Early College High School (Website)

Rating: 2.1/5 (14 votes cast)

Comments

Early College High School is a promising high school reform model targeting students for whom the transition into post-secondary education is currently problematic. Students of Early Colleges engage in a rigorous and supportive academic program of study that blends high school and college work with the goal that students will graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree or 60 college credit hours toward a baccalaureate degree. General information about this program can be found in the Who We Are, Texas ECHS Map, and What is ECHS? sections of this website. Those interested in designing and planning a new Early College will find in-depth resources organized by topic in our Resource Guide.

In conversations about the future of higher education, dual credit elicits a wide range of opinions. Considered a cure-all by some and a cop-out by others, dual credit offers students the opportunity to concurrently fulfill high school and university requirements in a single course. While classes can meet at higher education campuses, they are increasingly being offered at and taught in high school classrooms by teachers who are certified by a credit-giving institution instead of full-fledged professors...

An Audit Report on Dual Credit Programs at Selected ISDs and Higher Education Institutions (Website)

Rating: 3.0/5 (22 votes cast)

Overall Conclusion
All selected community colleges' and corresponding independent school districts' (ISDs) dual credit programs fully or substantially complied with most state requirements, as well as with the applicable community colleges' and ISDs' policies and procedures.

Ten of the 12 community colleges reviewed fully or substantially complied with all requirements related to ensuring that students met minimum test scores and completed prerequisite courses to enroll in dual credit courses. Eight of the 12 community colleges reviewed fully or substantially complied with all requirements related to ensuring that all dual credit teachers met the requirements to teach dual credit courses and were approved prior to the courses' start dates.

However, 10 of the 12 community colleges reviewed should improve their monitoring and evaluation of dual credit courses and/or teachers. In addition, 8 of the 12 community colleges should improve their contract agreements for dual credit programs with at least one ISD tested to ensure that the contract agreements include all of the elements required by the Texas Administrative Code and are signed by representatives of both the community college and ISD prior to the offering of dual credit courses.

To determine the dual credit programs' compliance with state rules and regulations and community college and ISD policies and procedures, auditors tested compliance in five general areas. Those areas were:
  • Student eligibility.

  • Teacher requirements.

  • Monitoring and evaluation.

  • Contract agreements.

  • Policies and procedures.


Auditors also identified other less significant issues that were communicated separately in writing to each community college reviewed.

Welcome to the Dual Credit program at Grayson County College. The GCC Dual Credit program allows all high school junior and senior students to earn high school and college credits simultaneously. Through dual credit agreements, the College and the public school districts in Grayson and Fannin Counties have selected courses that meet both high school and College learning objectives. Depending upon the school district, these classes are offered at local high schools, at the GCC extension center in Bonham, the South Campus in Van Alstyne, and on the main Grayson County College campus.

Dual Enrollment (Interactive Training Module)

Rating: 2.8/5 (20 votes cast)

Comments

Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn academic college or career and technology credit towards a post secondary certificate or degree at South Texas College (STC) that will also count as credit toward a high school diploma. Dual enrollment courses are college courses. Students should understand that the amount of work necessary to succeed in dual enrollment courses may be greater than that of high school courses. In addition, dual enrollment courses become a part of a student’s permanent college record and transcript. Students should check with their high school guidance counselor prior to enrolling in dual enrollment courses.

Teaching Four Generations (Interactive Training Module)

Comments

Recorded at TCCTA's Annual Convention 2012.
Speaker: Gemmy Allen, Professor of Management & Marketing, North Lake College

It is challenging to teach the traditional student, but it is even more challenging to teach the non-traditional student. The situation gets even more complicated as college professors find themselves teaching four generations. This is the first time in American history that we have had four different generations sitting side-by-side in the classroom.
  • Silents (Born between 1925 and 1946)

  • Baby Boomers (Born between 1946 and 1964)

  • Generation Xers (Born between 1965 and 1980)

  • Generation Ys or Millennials (born after 1980)


Each generation varies with different values, ideas, and ways of communicating. Millenials, teens and twenty-somethings, are the newest generation entering college. Attend this presentation and find out how you compare with Millenials and other generations.
