Duet Students Study Abroad

In late February of this year six Duet students and I traveled to Colombia on a study and service trip. These students are enrolled in online Associate or Bachelor’s degree program at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) with Duet. This trip was a chance for them to build on what they are learning in their degrees, have new experiences, and give back.

"This was an experience I will never forget. An experience I will talk to my kids about someday.”    ~ Heyden Acosta, Duet student

How Duet Fits into the Life of Bianna Bautista, a Full-time Nursing Assistant, Fitness Enthusiast and Dominican Mother from Dorchester

I chose Duet because it was the perfect program for my lifestyle. The flexibility and the fact that you work on your own pace works perfectly with my schedule. A lot of times, it’s hard when you go to college and you have to schedule your time with your classes, but Duet courses are always available. On my down time at work, I work on my Duet projects. 

"Duet gives you the ability to get your degree at a faster rate and gives you more support. It’s like a family in a way. When I was at community college, I didn’t really get to know the professors or students well. I feel much more included at Duet."

Forbes -- New Study: Less Expensive Competency Based Education Programs Just as Good as Traditional Programs

Competency based education BostonWe are excited to see how this Forbes' article supports the competency based education model that Duet and SNHU are pushing for! Students not only learn more through CBE programs but that this model is more affordable, flexible and provides work readiness skills. 

The average tuition for a bachelor’s degree at a traditional four-year college increased more than 15 times faster than the average household income in the United States. Students who borrow graduate with an average of $27,000 in student loans. Student loan defaults slow economic growth by limiting access to credit, stifling entrepreneurship, and reducing long-term buying power.

Duet’s own Tena Fenton at SXSW EDU 2018

The SXSW (South by Southwest) EDU Learning Expo was truly an enlightening experience! The Learning Expo blends together a dynamic community of innovators, students, student startups, educators, and exhibitors who all share the commonality of personal and professional growth in sectors of education.

The SXSW conference featured student performances, sessions, programming, keynotes, panels, and workshops which focused on spreading the knowledge and information of what is taking place in Higher Education through expert improvement and individual development.

This year, I was given the opportunity to join a conversation led by a panel of thought leaders such as Gerald Chertavian (CEO of YearUp), Daniel Silva (YearUp graduate), and Yvonne Simon (SNHU partner). The discussion focused on approaches to extend and develop the models for new types of higher education.
