Graduate Student Development and Support
The ACUE Faculty Development Institute at Rutgers-Newark is an intensive professional development program offered to enhance teaching practices. The Associate of College and University Educators (ACUE) was founded by leaders in higher education to advance instruction, support college educators, and promote student success. ACUE helps colleges and universities achieve their goals for students through innovative faculty development partnerships and a research-based Course in Effective Teaching Practices.
The program is comprised of twenty-five (25) learning modules over two semesters (approximately 15 weeks long) covering five (5) content areas, including:
Designing an effective course and class
Establishing a productive classroom environment
Using active learning techniques
Promoting higher order thinking
Assessing to inform instruction and promote learning.
Faculty fellows spend each of the terms (1) individually working through online interactive modules, (2) exploring at least one technique in their classes, and (3) joining together biweekly as a group for a facilitated discussion focused on high-impact pedagogical practices and effective teaching strategies.
Upon successful completion of the course, faculty fellows receive a nationally-recognized Certificate in Effective College Instruction, endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE), and conferred the Rutgers-Newark designation of ACUE Distinguished Teaching Scholar.
Eligibility & Expectations: All Rutgers-Newark teaching faculty, including tenured/tenure-track, NTT, and PTL, and PhD students are eligible to participate.
