The quality and academic rigor of the Concurrent Enrollment Program is dependent on the active participation of our Faculty Liaisons.
Boise State academic department faculty liaisons provide essential curriculum oversight, mentorship, and support to the high school instructors. The primary responsibilities of the faculty liaisons include:
New Instructor/Course Approval
Faculty Liaisons review and approve all new applications submitted by high school instructors to ensure Concurrent Enrollment Program classes reflect the university’s and/or academic department’s pedagogical, theoretical, and philosophical orientation.
Faculty Liaisons visit high school instructors on-site annually or every other year. Observations are documented to provide instructors with feedback to continually improve the classroom experience for concurrent enrollment students. Faculty Liaisons are also available to present discipline-specific lectures on-site directly to concurrent enrollment students.
Instructor Orientation and Training
Faculty Liaisons provide orientation on course curriculum, assessment criteria, and course philosophy to high school instructors. They also conduct annual or bi-annual professional development workshops on course integrity, grading standards, course pedagogy, theory and philosophy, and other appropriate topics in each content area.
Faculty Liaisons communicate department-specific information to high school instructors on a regular basis, and include high school instructors in all department correspondence, listserv, academic notices, and general information. In addition to ongoing communication, Faculty Liaisons provide sample materials such as current sample syllabi, sample exams, textbook desk copies, and other course materials to ensure a congruent classroom experience.
