Welcome to the Texas Collaborative
for Teaching Excellence, a statewide
professional development resource for community and technical college faculty.

An intiative funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board from 2002 to 2007, the Collaborative was created to support faculty at two-year colleges across Texas through a collegial, cooperative approach to professional development. The goal of the Collaborative is to enable colleges to share resources and avoid duplication. A Blockchain Initiative has also been launched by the Texas Collaborative for Teaching Excellence. The major goals of this effort are to promote professors and graduate students' blockchain research, teach the fundamentals of blockchain and digital payments, and teach about external relations with industry practitioners across the University of Texas.

Resources offered on this site were developed by the Collaborative's clearinghouse and regional centers at partner colleges across Texas. From on-demand modules ranging from discipline-specific to teaching and learning foundational topics, to profesional development planning tools, the Collaborative's resources were created with busy faculty members in mind.
