What is TxDLA doing for you? TxDLA provides members with MUCH MORE than just an annual distance learning conference. Following are some of the initiatives the association is involved in on behalf of the distance learning industry in Texas:
TxDLA increased awards to include the entire constituency scope. This included expanding the Excellence & Innovation in Distance Learning Awards to include a recipient from each category TxDLA represents.
In addition this year TxDLA added a Legislator of the Year Award presented to a legislator who goes above and beyond in advocating for distance learning and educational needs for their constituents.
TxDLA has developed the Texas State Authorization Network (TxSAN), to provide updates and resources for Texas educational institutions and their authorization to conduct out-of-state activities. Monthly conference calls are held and there is a Google Group.
TxDLA is developing an outreach campaign for state and local legislators. The program is designed to reach out to legislators and ask for their current position statement on distance learning and providing information for them on distance learning to increase their awareness of what that entails.
TxDLA invited Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Member, Dr. Andrew Lofters, to the conference this year. TxDLA hopes to invite members of its constituencies governing bodies to attend the TxDLA conference to encourage their awareness and involvement with the group.
A website update form was created and posted on the website so that membership can contribute to the look and feel of the online presence for the association. Please fill the form out to update information on the website.
A member spotlight will be in effect, highlighting a member of TxDLA for the work they do to contribute to the progress of distance learning.
A "Public Policy" section was added to the website to provide legislative updates that affect our membership constituencies.
TxDLA Online Journal has launched. This peer-reviewed journal publishes distance learning research that is relevant to the constituencies represented by the association.
TxDLA Certifications: TxDLA has successfully launched an Accessibility Certification program that can be achieved online or through attending a series of workshops presented at the conference in combination with online projects. Certifications in other topics are under development.
