ACUE Microcourses


The P3 Collaboratory is now offering pedagogical training options for both in-person and remote instruction!  Starting in July 2021, the P3 will facilitate two distinct but overlapping versions of ACUE’s "Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Learning Environment" microcredential course.  


The "Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Online Learning Environment" course is geared towards inclusive and supportive practices in an online/hybrid courses, while the "Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Learning Environment" course focuses on best practices for creating community in a classroom environment.  Interested participants must indicate their course preference on the required application.  


Over a nine-week term (June 28th - August 29th), participants in the "Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Online Learning Environment" mini-course will cover the following topics: 

  • Welcoming Students to Online Learning 

  • Promoting Civil Online Learning Environments 

  • Engaging Underprepared Students in Online Learning 

  • Helping Students Persist in Online Learning 

  • Embracing Diversity in Online Learning 

  • Checking for Student Understanding in Online Learning 

  • Providing Useful Feedback for Online Learning 

During the same nine-weeks, participants in the "Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Learning Environment" will learn about: 

  • Leading the First Day of Class 

  • Promoting a Civil Learning Environment 

  • Engaging Underprepared Students 

  • Helping Students Persist in Their Studies 

  • Embracing Diversity in Your Classroom 

  • Checking for Student Understanding

These two micro-courses will run simultaneously, and course takers will have multiple opportunities to discuss the curriculum with their colleagues in the parallel track. Both courses will be conducted fully online and feature synchronous AND asynchronous components. 

Eligibility & Expectations:  All Rutgers University-Newark instructors, including Tenured/Tenure-Track, NTT, PTL, instructional staff, PhD, and MFA students are eligible to participate.
