Great Educational Innovation

I have just listened “Episode 519”. I am impressed by a series of great educational innovation done by the University System in Texas

1, Attract high school graduates and help them to set up their goal for college graduation and well prepare them for that.

2, Open more online courses for satisfying different student body’s demands.

3, Open more short- term courses. So students can graduate quicker than usual with certain credential. For example, one only need to have some liberal arts credits and also a certificate in a specific field, and then he/she can graduate. And these college graduates pretty well meet the needs of labor market.

4, Support life-long learning pipeline by cultivating the culture of alumni’s loyalty to their alma mater.

5, In order to face the challenge of the quick increment of Hispanic population in Texas, the university system in Texas builds a whole lot of other infrastructure for new type of student service. 5, In order to face the challenge of the quick increment of Hispanic population in Texas, the university system in Texas builds a whole lot of other infrastructure for new type of student service.

First, they launch a set of 20 research universities. The goal is to dramatically increase the pipeline of doctorin candidates in Texas for the Hispanic young people. Second, dramatically increases teaching faculties for college and university in the market place. So all the colleges and universities can work better for Texas different students' groups.

6, In their point of view, one important value of education is to make sure social & economic mobility. Sending colored poor minority young teenagers to the middle class is one of mission of common college education. Today in Amerca, entering middle class requires the credentials beyond high school. Therefore, the university system in Texas is doing great meet the ever change higher education in America.
