Association of College & University Educators (ACUE) – Course in Effective Teaching Practices with a Concentration in Career Guidance and Readiness
October 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
ACUE Training Available – 2019/2020 Cohort!
We are pleased to announce that SCCRC is again partnering with the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) to offer its Course in Effective Teaching Practices with a Concentration in Career Guidance and Readiness to a limited number of faculty participants. The Course is designed to credential higher education faculty with a nationally-recognized Certificate in Effective College Instruction endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE). The goal of this program is to support faculty and strengthen teaching with evidence-based practices that promote student learning and 21st century career readiness. All training and program costs will be covered by Strong Workforce Program funding.
The Course consists of 25 modules that you will complete online working with a cohort of other faculty and guided by a faculty facilitator. This is the only required in-person meeting for the training and you only need to attend ONE of the two events. At the event, you will complete your first program module.
The first event will be held on Thursday, Oct 10 from 6:00 – 9:00pm in Valencia. (The exact location will be provided once confirmed.)
The second event will be held on Friday, Oct 11 from 9:00am – Noon in Oxnard/Ventura. (The exact location will be provided once confirmed.)
The Course will be divided into two parts. The first part will begin at the launch event on Oct 10 or 11 and will continue through Nov 24, 2019. The second part will begin Jan 2, 2020 and go through May 24, 2020. To receive the nationally-recognized Certificate in Effective College Instruction, you must complete both parts.
The Course shares teaching practices from the following five units of study: Designing an Effective Course and Class, Establishing a Productive Learning Environment, Using Active Learning Techniques, Promoting Higher Order Thinking, and Assessing to Inform Instruction and Promote Learning. You can learn more about the Course and the content of each module here: http://acue.org/course/
This opportunity is available to full time and part-time career education faculty. The only requirement is that the faculty member must be teaching a course (in any delivery format – online, hybrid, hyflex, or onground) while taking the ACUE course.
