Missouri S&T faculty members who completed a yearlong course in effective online teaching practices will be recognized at a ceremony at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 9, via Zoom.
The training was provided by the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) and had a 90% completion rate. Fifty-eight faculty participated in the 25-module course, which was facilitated by the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE). Individuals who successfully completed the program earned nationally recognized online teaching credentials. Other participants received micro-credentials.
The University of Missouri System-ACUE initiative is focused on improving quality instruction, and ultimately student success, through intentional professional development for faculty across the four universities through a grant provided by the National Association of System Heads. The teaching practices learned in the course are proven to help students learn more, stay engaged and graduate in higher numbers.
The faculty will be recognized by the provost, deans and ACUE administrators. To hear about faculty experiences in the training, watch these video interviews.
All faculty, whether they are enrolled in the program or not, can use the free resources offered on the ACUE website.
