Five members of the Boise State Concurrent Enrollment Program presented at this year’s National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships conference, which was held Oct. 13-15 in Salt Lake City.
More than 1,000 people attended the conference. Concurrent enrollment director Fabiola Juarez-Coca, adjunct professor Teresa Focarile, concurrent enrollment senior coordinator Kristi Lakatos, concurrent enrollment coordinator Rebecca Mattucci and education specialist Carissa Wilcox all led presentations about their work. Their presentations focused on enhancing academic oversight provided by faculty liaisons to concurrent enrollment high school instructors, student academic advising, field research and establishing partnerships with secondary schools.
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 is a state and national leader in best practices related to program implementation, course quality and professional development for instructors.
This fall, there are more than 5,700 students concurrently enrolled in university classes at 50 high schools across the Treasure Valley and online through Idaho Digital Learning Alliance.
