ACUE Effective Teaching Practices

BGSU full-time faculty members have the opportunity to participate in ACUE’s comprehensive course on Effective Teaching Practices. This 25-week course prepares faculty in evidence-based teaching practices proven through independently-validated research to improve student achievement and close equity gaps. The course will be delivered fully online with a cohort of faculty colleagues. Fall 2022 Cohort begins on August 22, 2022. Registration is open at the link on the right navigation!
