The Texas Success Center invites colleges to submit proposals for concurrent sessions at the upcoming Texas Pathways Institute, Teaching and Learning in a Texas Pathways Framework, to be held November 14-16 in Dallas, Texas.

The fourth pillar of the Texas Pathways strategy—ensuring students are learning—outlines the essential practices that support student learning in coursework and across program plans. Upon program completion, students should be equipped with the knowledge and skills required for success in employment and further education in a given field. To ensure students are learning, Texas community colleges are defining program learning outcomes and supporting teaching strategies to create engaging courses across programs.

Concurrent sessions will emphasize the importance of teaching and learning in the Texas Pathways framework through the development of culturally competent, active, and contextualized teaching practices, the expansion of experiential learning opportunities (I.e., internships, apprenticeships, etc.), the alignment of program learning outcomes with careers and transfer to universities, and innovation in technology and data use to support student learning. Please take this opportunity to share your college's successes with your colleagues from around the state by submitting a concurrent session proposal.
