Academic Co-ops are not regulated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). These classes are centered on experiential learning activities within the classroom or college campuses. Examples include case studies, entrepreneurial activities, and research-based classes.
Workforce co-ops are another form of experiential learning defined by the THECB. Workforce co-ops are identical to practicums, but have an added requirement of weekly lectures.
