ACUE: INSPIRING INQUIRY & LIFELONG LEARNING
PROGRAMS IN PEDAGOGY
Teaching is so much more than content delivery. An excellent educator shows students how to learn and equips them with the skills needed to pursue questions beyond course confines. With the majority of Rutgers-Newark students learning online this year, faculty need more than the technical basics to help students fully invest in their own learning — they must be prepared to use evidence-base pedagogical approaches that enhance students’ online experience.
Thanks to continued support from the Chancellor’s Office, the P3 Collaboratory can provide a select group of faculty, teaching staff, and PhD / MFA students with the opportunity to actively improve their teaching practice through participation in a FREE 8-week course on fostering intellectual curiosity and persistence created by the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) and facilitated by P3 faculty.
Built on the same evidence-based practices used in our long-running Effective Teaching Practices program, this *new* micro-credential course, Inspiring Inquiry and Lifelong Learning in Your Online Course, includes training content on how to increase online engagement and prepare students to meet academic challenges.
Over an eight-week term (Jan 11th - March 12th), participants will cover the following topics:
Motivating Students Online
Providing Clear Directions and Explanations in Online Courses
Integrating Visualization Tools in Online Courses
Using Data and Feedback to Improve Online Teaching
Using Advanced Questioning in Online Courses
Developing Self-Directed Online Learners
This course will be conducted fully online and feature both synchronous and asynchronous components.
Eligibility & Expectations: All Rutgers University-Newark teaching faculty, including Tenured/Tenure-Track, NTT, PTL, PhD, and MFA students are eligible to participate. Note that faculty who have completed the Effective Teaching Practices certificate program are eligible to apply to this course, the second in a new series of microcredentials on ONLINE pedagogy.
For more information, please see FAQ sheet here.
Ready to apply? Applications are due on December 22, 2020 by 5pm. Participants will need to attend a mandatory course orientation during the week of January 11th.
Interested and eligible applicants are encouraged to apply soon, as we anticipate that interest will outstrip capacity for this course.
