The Transformative Teaching Track is a two-part, two-day experiential and intensive training in classroom strategies, co-curricular design and team building with an emphasis on culturally responsive practice.

Our training is tailored to meet the needs of faculty who wish to play a leadership role in response to House Bill 2223 and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s 60x30 campaign.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board would like for colleges to send teams of two (including one INRW faculty member and one credit-level faculty member from a reading-intensive discipline) that are working together or may work together in the implementation of co-requisite courses in the fall and spring.

What we Offer:

  • Innovative and engaging lessons
  • Team building activities and planning time
  • Culturally relevant curricula
  • Connections to universities and research opportunities
  • Individual and team coaching
  • Access to a national network of experts

Additionally, attendees can earn one graduate credit at UT-Austin for their participation in this training in the fall and one in the spring through the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy. For more information, please visit:
