Request for Participants: ACUE Course in Effective Teaching Practice

The Committee on Teaching and Learning is recruiting participants for the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Course in Effective Teaching Practices program; a series of online modules. These are high quality and professionally produced with well-known experts in our field.

Instructional Faculty and Staff can earn $1000 for completion of 11 online modules; one at orientation then five during the fall 2018 and five during the spring 2019 semesters. They will run every two weeks for ten weeks in the fall and spring with an hour long f-2-f meeting on the last Friday of each session to debrief and share what you learned. These mandatory modules were selected based upon ACUE survey responses (n= 57) from a couple of weeks ago. There will also be two in-person sessions presented by an ACUE representative occurring right after this spring’s Solar grade deadline, where one module will be completed, and just before the start of the fall semester.

To apply, please send a statement of interest (50 words or less) to tlc@uwp.edu. Applicants will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis until the 30 available slots are filled, so please apply as soon as possible. We are seeking an equitable representation from the four colleges.

Endorsed by the American Council on Education, ACE certification will be awarded to recognize educators who complete 25 of the Course in Effective Teaching Practices modules. Completion of 14 additional online modules is included in the attached schedule if you choose to obtain certification. Please Visit ACUE course website to learn more.
