Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment

Orientation & Training

New High School Dual Credit Faculty will be required to complete discipline-specific orientation and training with a faculty liaison and/or department chair prior to becoming eligible to deliver an MSSU course on a high school campus. See also: Course Approval Form. The discipline-specific orientation and training may include the following topics: course materials, teaching methodology, testing procedures, student assessment strategies, and instructor evaluation information.

In addition to discipline-specific training, a more general orientation and training must be completed by the new high school dual credit faculty member. The general orientation and training may include the following topics: program expectations, human resources information and paperwork, required training for adjunct faculty (FERPA, registrar info, information technology programs and use, etc.).  Additional discipline-specific professional development and training opportunities may arise throughout the year, and will be made available to High School Dual Credit Instructor. Communication of these opportunities will come directly from the MSSU Academic Department.

Failure to complete required orientation and training will render the High School Dual Credit Faculty Member ineligible to teach any dual credit course during the subsequent academic year.

Professional Development

High School Dual Credit Faculty will have the opportunity to attend any professional development activity normally offered to all faculty members throughout the year.  Additional discipline-specific professional development and training opportunities may arise throughout the year, and will be made available to High School Dual Credit Faculty.  Communication of these opportunities will come directly from the MSSU Academic Department.  The MSSU Academic Department shall maintain documentation of both attendance and other documents (agendas, minutes, reports, etc.) at discipline-specific professional development activities, and shall provide such documentation at the request of the Office of Academic Outreach annually.  The High School Dual Credit Faculty Member should submit a Professional Development Documentation Form to the Office of Academic Outreach upon completion of each professional development activity that is not provided by MSSU.  Failure to attend at least one discipline-specific professional development activity annually will render the High School Dual Credit Faculty Member ineligible to teach any dual credit course during the subsequent academic year.  In the event of a demonstrated and documented extraordinary circumstance, MSSU may grant relief to a High School Dual Credit Faculty Member who is absent for a professional development activity.  Such relief will be granted on a case-by-case basis.
