Austin Community College District's Quality Enhancement Plan
Digital Fluency & Innovation was chosen by an inclusive and multi-staged process as ACC’s Quality Enhancement Plan, a requirement of the accreditation reaffirmation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Because of its important role in the Central Texas community, ACC serves a pivotal responsibility by promoting and developing digital skills and competencies for the workforce of the future.
The Digital Fluency & Innovation QEP core team is supported by the QEP Implementation Committee which is made up of representative members including faculty from both academic transfer and workforce areas, Student Affairs, Institutional Research and Analytics, Learning Labs, and other key areas of the college. These members assist in the achievement of the project plan, timeline, and budget, advocate for college-wide adoption of the microcredentials, and contribute to data collection and analysis.
