Discovery Series Webinar: TEXAS OnRamps and Innovative Dual Enrollment Models
May 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This Discovery Series will take us to Texas. College completion is one of our nation’s most wicked educational problems. In every state in the nation, the large majority of high school students never complete a college degree. Widespread consensus points to two root problems: tuition costs and misalignment between college and high school expectations. OnRamps, The University of Texas at Austin’s dual enrollment program, addresses both problems using innovative design features. Created to drive educational change at scale, OnRamps has served over 20,000 students on more than 170 secondary campuses. Its four-pillar model, emphasizing rigorous content, innovative pedagogy, technology-enhanced education and educator excellence, transforms teachers and students along individual, structural, and behavioral dimensions. This webinar will illuminate the features of OnRamps. We hope that you will join us.
