EPCC’s Teachership Academy Finalist for National Bellwether Award

El Paso Community College (EPCC) is one of the top 10 finalists for the 2017 Bellwether Award from the Community College Futures Assembly in the Planning, Governance, and Finance category.

The Bellwether Awards are given to colleges with outstanding and innovative programs or practices focusing on cutting-edge, trendsetting initiatives that other colleges might find worthy of replicating. EPCC is being recognized for its Teachership Academy’s program Creating Our Own Master Teachers through a Two Phase Cohort Experience Focusing on Teaching and Learning.

“The Teachership Academy models what we strive to accomplish in the classroom in order to offer our students a stimulating learning experience,” Dr. Lydia Tena, EPCC Dean of Instructional Programs, Northwest Campus. “The Academy supports student success by providing faculty additional tools that can be used in their classrooms toinclude collaborative learning, active learning, and student engagement offered through a cohort experience and supported by mentoring for each participant.”

In 2013, EPCC was a Bellwether Award Finalist for its work with technology and teaching techniques in its Math Emporiums.

The 2017 Community College Futures Assembly will convene in Orlando, Florida, January 29-31, 2017. The programs that were selected by the national panel of judges as Finalists for the Bellwether Award will present information about their programs as part of the final competition and the winners will be announced.

A goal of EPCC is to provide academic programs and support services that are clear pathways to skill development, timely degree completion and transfer to a university or gainful employment.

The Teachership Academy is a faculty-created and directed ten- month professional development program designed to provide faculty a cohort experience while focusing on teaching and learning through a curriculum that is geared to enhancing their teaching skills, including learning new techniques to make their classes more interactive and thus making student success more likely in their classes.
