Concurrent Enrollment Instructor Support
High school instructors who are approved to teach receive adjunct faculty status, a faculty ID card, access to Albertsons Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning for research and professional development, as well as a BroncoMail email account.
Each academic department has a designated Boise State faculty member who serves as the liaison between the high school instructor and Boise State, providing guidance for the high school curriculum to be aligned with the college curriculum. The faculty liaison is an academic resource for the high school instructors, and they include the high school instructor in all departmental events, professional development opportunities, and listservs. See The Role of Faculty Liaisons for more information.
There must be a minimum of 5 concurrently enrolled students in order to offer a concurrent enrollment course. An annual stipend for the high school instructor is provided. The stipend amount is based on student enrollment numbers: instructors will receive $20 per credit per student (e.g., 5 students in a 3-credit class = 5 x 3 x $20 = $300). This stipend is provided to cover additional duties added to the instructor’s workload, such as handling registration questions, maintaining class and grade rosters, scheduling coordinator visits, and fulfilling requests by academic departments. For Boise School District instructors, the stipend goes toward classroom support and professional development opportunities. Funds are sent directly to the school district.
Annual Concurrent Enrollment Instructor Training
All new and continuing Concurrent Enrollment instructors are required to attend the annual Concurrent Enrollment Instructor Training to get updates on the program’s administration, review department policies, and meet with the faculty liaison for professional development. The instructor training is held in early August and meeting information will be provided in early May. Alternate meetings may be scheduled by the faculty liaison if he/she is not available to meet during August.
Ongoing Professional Development for Concurrent Enrollment Instructors
Additional opportunities for professional development may be provided annually by academic departments. Attending at least one professional development opportunity per year with your faculty liaison is mandatory. These training events may be held either in-person or remotely via Zoom or other means of delivery. See Instructor Annual Professional Development for more information.
The Boise State Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) also has numerous university-wide faculty development opportunities in which instructors are encouraged to participate. Participation fosters dialogue, scholarship, innovation, and excellence in learner-centered strategies. The CTL aims to support, promote, and enhance teaching effectiveness and to facilitate engagement in student learning through workshops and resources.
Faculty ID Card
Concurrent Enrollment Instructors qualify for a Boise State faculty ID card. Your faculty ID card entitles you to resources at Albertsons Library, free city bus and shuttle rides, and access to Boise State recreational and physical fitness facilities (for a fee). A faculty ID card also acts as a library card with a 100-item checkout allowance. For instructions on obtaining the card, visit the Boise State Info Desk.
The Concurrent Enrollment Program is resuming campus visits for the 2021-2022 school year.
Comprehensive virtual campus tours are still available through the Boise State Admissions Office. We encourage you to touch base with your faculty liaison for additional resources available to your students and classroom.
