Teaching Modules:


Modules Developed by Past Perkins-Funded Projects:

Integrating Technical Contexts into Academic Courses
The series of learning modules listed below was developed by faculty at El Paso Community College, Houston Community College, Panola Community College, South Texas Community College, and Texas State Technical College in 2001 through a Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board project funded by the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998.  

Each module provides information and materials to help instructors in academic disciplines teach their subject matter within the context of a technical field.  They include samples of materials that are free to use as is or to modify, as well as information on how to create similar materials yourself.  A descriptive outline of each module is provided here.  

Most learning modules were developed in PowerPoint and have a varying number of media and/or video files linked to them.  To request an individual learning module via e-mail or the entire collection of modules on CD-ROM, please e-mail [email protected].
