Curriculum Design and Accreditation

 

Texas is world-renowned for K-16 curriculum design, bilingual education, and mapping curricula to the labor market. 

Our approach to curriculum design, review, and accreditation means working closely with our clients to:

  • Review, design, and reform new and existing curriculum and degree programs

  • Prepare for and meet the standards for accreditation

  • Twinning program, joint-degree proposals, articulation, and curriculum mapping.

Our partnership with TIEC resulted in an academic institution that satisfies international standards and is a new addition to traditional higher education institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the region. P.jpg

Examples:

Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University (PMU) in Dammam, Saudi Arabia:

PMU’s design is based on the American university model of inquiry-based learning, with administrative structures modeled on the Texas university systems. PMU emphasizes learning competencies and the application of information technology in all programs. These include degrees in business administration, engineering, information technology, and interior design TIEC has conducted two follow-on projects to review and update curriculum, and to advise on new academic degree programs

Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (UANL), Monterrey, Mexico

TIEC partnered with UANL on five separate occasions to restructure the curriculum of several academic programs. The reform process involved teams of faculty from both UANL and TIEC-affiliated universities, who have worked together to define the knowledge and skills required of graduates, and then to review the existing curricula and pedagogy. This effort included designing new courses, specifying pedagogical methods and student-learning experiences, writing new course syllabi with suggested textbooks, and defining the faculty characteristics needed to teach the revised curricula.
