The University of Texas at Arlington’s (UTA) Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Collaborate UTA, provides undergraduate students with a competitive edge by assessing and enhancing a key skill that employers desire: teamwork.

Texas Core objectives and employer surveys all show that the ability to work in teams is one of the most important marketable, or career and life, skills students can acquire in college, and bring to an internship or a job. Collaboration is one of UTA’s core values as stated in UT Arlington’s Strategic Plan, 2020 Bold Solutions, Global Impact

Professional Learning Communities (PLC) are one of the vehicles we are using for implementing the QEP. The first PLC is almost over. We will be holding a colloquium featuring Dr. Paul Paulus speaking on "The Keys to Successful Teamwork." Following Dr. Paulus, PLC Fellows will hold a poster session where they will present the results of how they enhanced and assessed teamwork in their courses. Information on the colloquium can be found here.

If you're interested in being a PLC Fellow for Fall 2018 contact Dr. Andrew Clark at or 817-272-3054.
