  • League for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXIn the Beginning……Rick Perry $10,000 degree and competency based degree challengesLeague for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXEconomic Need
  • Only one in fouremployers thinks that two and four year colleges are doing a good job of preparing students for the 21st century’s global, knowledge-based economy.
  • If Texas is to achieve the vision of a globally competitive workforce, it must make dramatic gains in the education attainment of its population... Texas must more than double annual degree production to reach the level of the best performing country of 55% of the population ages 24-64 with an associate degree or higher by 2025. Even with the significant progress in increasing degree production toward the Closing the Gaps targets, degree production in Texas is not increasing at a rate necessary to keep pace with global competition.
  • League for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXNext Generation Learning Challenges
  • A multi-year initiative by Educause, in collaboration with League for Innovation, Council of Chief State School Officers, and the International Association for K-12 Online Learning and funded by the Gates Foundation and the Hewlett Foundation, focused on identifying and scaling technology-enabled approaches to dramatically improve college readiness and completion.
  • NGLC re-imagines the future of student success with IT as an essential enabler, making customized, interactive learning possible. IT also makes it possible to extend the reach and multiply the benefits of such innovations for the thousands of students who need them the most.
  • League for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXLocationTo develop a competency-based, low-cost Bachelor of Applied Sciences in Organizational Leadership degree that will give Texas students that opportunity to acquire a high-quality education designed to provide the skills employers have identified as necessary for the 21st century. Our new vision for the next generation of learners involves a disruptive innovation in how students experience higher education - a change from measuring seat time spent sitting in the classroom to a competency-based model focused on content mastery. The TAB Program will award credits and degrees based on measurable competencies and improve college access and completion by reducing educational costs and time-to-degree.League for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXSTC Enrollment History: 1993 to 2012 (Fall)Fall 2012 – 30,824 StudentsLeague for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXSTC Bachelor Program EnrollmentLeague for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXSTC Bachelor Program GraduatesFall 2013 – 496 GraduatesLeague for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXBachelor Programs Bachelor of Applied Technology In Computer Information Technology(Fall 2007)Bachelor of Applied Technology In Technology Management(Fall 2005)Coming Soon !!

  • League for Innovation Conference lMarch 12, 2013 l Dallas, TXDisruptive InnovationDisruptive innovations are those innovations that are simpler, more convenient, and more affordable for a new group of non-traditional users. These innovations run parallel to sustaining innovations but shift the paradigm to broaden availability to non-traditional users. These innovations improve over time and eventually overtake the traditional paradigm.References:Christensen, C. (2011) The Innovator’s DilemmaChristensen, C. & Raynor, M.
