Providing Increased Access and Affordability for Students via “Inclusive Access”
Co-chairs of the Tarrant County College Inclusive Access Project, Dr. Mark McClendon and Dr. Tyson McMillan, discuss their affordability program called TCC Plus, which launched in Spring 2018. TCC Plus is student focused, faculty driven, and administrative supported. Dr. McClendon shares his perspective from the administrative seat and Dr. McMillan, as co-chair and a faculty member in the program, shares the impact he has seen in the classroom. The webinar facilitators take you through their journey to Inclusive Access, how they implemented the program, share results from the pilot, as well as how they plan to grow exponentially in the upcoming academic semesters.
*Inclusive Access is a partnership between the institution, publishers, and campus bookstore to provide digital course materials to students on or before the first day of class at below market rates.
