Our university offers Accel, or dual-enrollment, college courses that are taught by university faculty in the high school. The program supports Complete College Georgia by offering core courses tuition free to high school students so that they can enter college after high school with a year's worth of credits accumulated, thus reducing the time and expense needed to complete their degree. We are presenting a panel discussion of our experiences as faculty teaching these courses. We will discuss the obstacles we encountered in the high schools and how we dealt with these issues to create an engaging learning experience for the students. Our panel consists of English, Economics, Math, and Psychology instructors. The audience will have the opportunity to engage in discussion and we will provide a Tip Sheet of issues to expect and ways to ease the transition from college classroom to high school classroom.
