The History of Texas Course Redesign


In 2006 during the 79th Texas Legislature, Third Called Session, a number of college readiness and success initiatives were passed. Among those was the Texas Course Redesign Project. Section 61.0763 of the Texas Education Code requires the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to “implement a project under which institutions of higher education selected by the Board will review and revise entry-level lower-division academic courses… to improve student learning and reduce the cost of course delivery through the use of information technology." 

Towards that end, the Coordinating Board has funded a number of course redesign and related projects. In 2006-2007, Phase I of the Texas Course Redesign Project was implemented. This was followed by Phase II in 2007, Phase III in 2007-2009, and Phase IV in 2008-2010. In addition to the Texas Course Redesign Project, several other related grants were made including one for the development of the Texas Learning Objects Repository (2008-2011) and online faculty professional development modules in college mathematics, reading comprehension, critical thinking, foreign language instruction, and online/hybrid education. 

Information on the RFPs for these programs can be accessed through the links below.
