OnRAMPS Dual Credit


OnRamps is a pioneering blended learning dual-­‐credit initiative led by the Center for Teaching and Learning at The University of Texas at Austin (UT) and supported by the Texas Legislature, National Science Foundation, and Lumina Foundation.  OnRamps courses, designed by UT faculty, emphasize project-­‐based learning, flipped learning, critical thinking, and discovery and application of new knowledge. The courses are aligned with the Texas College and Career Readiness Standards and/or the TEKS. By providing opportunities for immersive in-­‐class and out-­‐of- ‐class learning experiences that align with the rigor of a leading research university, OnRamps aims to increase academic achievement among college students.
OnRamps also incorporates cutting-­‐edge technologies that support blended learning and features learning analytics that instructors can use to improve course materials over time. Designed to be in the service of students and teachers, OnRamps provides faculty and learners with opportunities to experience classrooms in research-­‐based and innovative ways. In addition, through a robust instructor support network, OnRamps is cultivating a community of innovative Texas educators prepared to teach dual-­‐credit, blended courses aligned with the expectations of leading research universities.
