What is the TLC?
The Texas Learning Consortium (TLC, formerly “Texas Language Consortium”) is a cross-institutional collaboration among four private universities in Texas: Lubbock Christian University, Schreiner University, Texas Lutheran University, and Texas Wesleyan University. Launched in 2012, TLC uses HD video-conferencing technology and other online tools to share a mix of world language courses in a blended learning environment, incorporating distance learners into face-to-face classrooms. The program was awarded a three-year grant from the TEAGLE Foundation.
The current TLC curriculum is primarily focused on foreign language courses, including Portuguese, Chinese, German, French, and Spanish (see “Course Schedules” for current offerings). In 2018, the Texas Learning Consortium adds additional language courses (Latin), as well as classes in other disciplines, such as Engineering, Math, and Religious Studies.
