Fabiola Juarez-Coca and Teresa Focarile co-presented at the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships annual conference held in Washington, D.C. Oct. 9-10. Their presentation on “Supporting Faculty Liaisons: A Partnership Model” focused on the partnership and support provided by the CTL to enhance professional development and instructional alignment opportunities for faculty liaisons and concurrent enrollment high school instructors.

Their presentation shared models for partnering with other institutional units to enhance the academic support provided by faculty liaisons to concurrent enrollment instructors. Boise State faculty provide academic support, professional development and academic oversight to ensure quality in the concurrent enrollment classes. Concurrent enrollment continues to grow across the nation as more universities and community colleges offer high school students the opportunity to earn credits and get a head start in their college career. Boise State’s program continues to be a leader in best practices related to program implementation, course quality and professional development for instructors. This fall there are more than 4,200 students concurrently enrolled in university classes at 48 high schools across the Treasure Valley and online through Idaho Digital Learning.
