TAACCCT Grant

The US Department of Labor is showing increasing sophistication in its requirements for use of its $474.5M TAACCCT #3 grant dollars. Consortia applications with authentic partnerships, rather than those who ‘throw in their kitchen sink’, will no doubt do better. To help connect the dots in areas of importance to the grant, Maureen White is hosting five webinars to help interested fiscal agents/applicants pull together a winning application. All will be archived if you don’t catch them live.

View the recording of the webinar
Download the webinar slides

Explore how the Open Courseware Consortium (OCCRL) uses its research and evaluation experience to design and conduct evaluation of the implementation of programs of study (POS) and core strategies that are aligned with grants. We measure how well colleges’ POS and strategies are meeting the priorities reflected in their grants, using mixed methods approaches, longitudinal studies, and retrospective sampling to link data on program implementation to student outcomes.

Conducting Quality Evaluations - Continuous Improvement
Thursday, June 20, 2013,
12:00 PM - 12:45 PM CDT

Learn about continuous improvement, a critical aspect of our evaluation of TAACCCT grant recipients.

The Opportunity
For community colleges to become essential catalysts to California’s economic recovery and jobs creation at the local, regional and state levels.

The Strategy
Doing What MATTERS for jobs and the economy is a four-pronged framework to respond to the call of our nation, state, and regions to close the skills gap. The four prongs are:

  • Give Priority for Jobs and the Economy
  • Make Room for Jobs and the Economy
  • Promote Student Success
  • Innovate for Jobs and the Economy
