High School Science Teacher Vlog #8 | Dual-Credit Teacher Professional D...

Chembridge is a dual-credit course offered through the University of Texas at Austin.  The program is part of the Pre-College Academic Readiness Program (through a division that oversees diversity and community issues on campus and throughout the state). The course is taught online by a University of Texas professor. High school teachers co-teach in person at their respective campus. Students also receive 6 hours of college credit upon successful completion of both semesters. 



I inherited the course from a teacher that had left at the end of last school year (and she had inherited it from a teacher that had left mid-semester last year). I had previously co-taught the course approximately 10 years ago. Chembridge has undergone faculty and programmatic changes since then.  



The workshop served as teacher professional development over a 4 day period (originally scheduled for 5 days).  Teachers received professional development credits at the end of the workshop. Additionally, individuals will return in the fall for 1.5 days of teacher professional development



In the video, I share my experiences over the week of July 24th - July 28th - everything from traveling to campus, to fighting and surviving allergies, and working problems that my students will work on throughout the school year.

  1. You may have skirted through your holiday shopping without using payday loans online direct lenders, but will that money management carry you into the New Year? The practice of overspending your budget during the holiday is almost expected yet many people do not prepare ahead of time. fast cash loans
