LEAP Texas was disappointed with the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel the in-person 7th Annual LEAP Texas Conference in response to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. However, we are happy to announce the launch of the 7th Annual LEAP Texas Conference Webinar Series! This series will feature a number of the Concurrent Session presentations that were scheduled for the Conference. The first part of this series will run from April 21 through May 8, 2020, with additional presentations coming over the summer.

With the shifting tides in higher education, many colleges and universities are branching out into the world of online education. As a result, instructors are requiring enhanced trainings, skill sets, and foundational knowledge in order to adjust and succeed within the virtual classroom. The American Womenâ€™s College (TAWC) at Bay Path University, a division employing adjunct-practitioners as course instructors for its 1300 adult women undergraduates, has developed a culture focused on the professional development and support of those who educate our students.
