What is ACUE?

The Association of College and university Educators (ACUE) courses prepare and support faculty to teach with research-based best practices, improving student achievement and closing equity gaps. Completion of ACUE courses lead to a nationally recognized Certificate in Effective College Instruction endorsed by the American Council of Education (ACE).

 

What can you expect when taking the Effective Teaching Practices (ETP) course?

  • The course starts with a 3-hour Course Launch on Friday, September 2nd from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and runs through the end of the spring semester.
  • ETP courses consist of 25 modules that are completed asynchronously, with one module delivered per week (with occasional break weeks).
  • The course addresses essential pedagogical skills and knowledge in five units of study: Designing an Effective Course and Class, Establishing a Productive Learning Environment, Using Active Learning Strategies, Promoting Higher Order Thinking, and Assessing to Inform Instruction and Promote Learning.
  • Each module has examples and methods for both in-person and online courses.
  • The average time commitment in completing the ETP course is 2-3 hours per week.
  • The ACUE course is offered at no cost to you or your department, thanks to the contribution from grants and funds.

"You Make the Difference" - ACUE
