George Brown College Gets the Message Out!
Over the summer of 2013, a Dual Credit Fact Sheet was created by George Brown College to highlight the more than 25 Dual Credit courses offered each year. The fact sheet can be posted on websites and linked via Facebook, Twitter and other social media tools. It can also be shared in hard copy and inserted in various packages or booklets.
In addition, George Brown College created a Dual Credit video that is accessed through YouTube. In the video, secondary school students share their Dual Credit 'college' experience. Through their own words, students explain why Dual Credits have made a difference in their lives and why their courses are powerful tools that work so well for thousands of students throughout the province.
