The workshop will be in-person with a virtual option. A $125 stipend is paid to the high school educators who attend in person. Please note that the virtual option is ASYNCHRONOUS, and there will not be a “live” link. We will record the sessions on June 15 and they will be posted in LATE JULY. At that time, you will receive an email with instructions and links to the recorded plenary sessions, to the professional development content in Canvas, and a form that indicates your participation. You will be asked to complete these at your convenience before the start of the school year.
The MBU ECP summer workshop is a one-day event filled with professional development, training, networking, and collaboration opportunities for partners. You will be the first to hear of program updates and policy changes. Through the workshop sessions, you will benefit from presentations by and discussions with MBU faculty, your faculty liaison, the MBU ECP team, other campus administrators, and fellow ECP teachers.
Attendees will meet the dual credit teacher expectations of the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) as well as the Higher Learning Commission guidelines for dual credit. Both organizations require workshop attendance tracking. Please note that some disciplines may only be offered online. Check the registration form for more details.
The workshop is held on the campus of Missouri Baptist University, 1 College Park Drive, St. Louis, MO 63141.

In these sessions, MBU faculty members introduce new research in content and/or pedagogy and review course content. On-campus faculty will provide the high school teachers with sample course materials. Sessions include time for discussion about the courses and issues common to instructors of the on-campus and high school sections.
New EXCEL Dual Credit Teacher Discipline Specific Training
In addition to professional development, teachers who are new to the EXCEL dual credit program will attend discipline specific training with an MBU faculty member. The teacher will be introduced to course content such as syllabi, texts, assessments, assignment expectations, grading policies, technology, and other items required for maintaining course alignment and rigor. New teachers will learn what it means to be an EXCEL dual credit teacher and best practices for teaching specific courses.
New Teacher and New Coordinator Program Orientation
An orientation to MBU ECP administration policies and procedures is also included for all new teachers and coordinators. During the orientation, new participants are provided with an “MBU ECP Handbook for Instructors and Coordinators. New teachers who do not attend the workshop will be contacted by an MBU ECP staff member who will conduct the training online or in person.
