To earn ACUE’s Certificate in Effective College Instruction, faculty members completed a 25-module course that required them to learn about and implement evidence-based teaching practices in their courses and reflect on the experience.
Aligned with the latest research in cognition and adult learning, ACUE’s course addresses evidence-based teaching practices. It covers how to design an effective course, establish a productive learning environment, use active learning techniques, promote higher order thinking, and utilize assessments to inform instruction and promote learning.
