Every year, MCTC arranges faculty exchanges with Minneapolis Public School teachers. The purpose of the faculty exchange is to keep MPS teachers up-to-date on college readiness standards. If you are a MPS teacher, you will have the opportunity to come to campus to observe MCTC college and pre-college courses within your discipline and participate in networking and other professional development opportunities. Faculty exchanges can be arranged in ESOL, math, reading and writing and for technical programs. This also creates opportunities for articulation and concurrent enrollment. To arrange a faculty exchange or to learn more information, please contact Dena Russell.
In our Concurrent Enrollment program, a credentialed high school faculty member teaches a college-level MCTC course at their high school site. This allows juniors and senior to earn college credit without leaving their high school and provides high school faculty the opportunity to teach a college-level course. As a a credentialed high school instructor, you will be matched with a college faculty member who mentors you on course curriculum and college policies.
In our Jump Start to College program, MCTC faculty and MPS teachers co-teach pre-college-level classes to help high school students develop the skills to be ready for college-level work. These courses are offered on the MCTC campus.
MCTC annually sponsors a College Readiness Symposium to bring a broader prospective to college readiness and to encourage collaboration between high school and college instructors. The symposium provides current information on college readiness standards at the state and national levels and connects faculty from across the educational spectrum.
