Great teachers never stop learning, and here in the UT System Office of Academic Affairs we work with and across our institutions to cultivate and amplify the faculty role in student success.
In support of the UT System’s effort to increase student success at all levels, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Faculty Advisory Council partnered in 2018-19 to offer UT System faculty the opportunity to participate in the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Course in Effective Teaching Practices. The ACUE Course leads to the Certificate in Effective College Instruction, the only nationally recognized teaching credential endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE).
The ACUE Course In Effective Teaching Practices
A growing number of colleges, universities and post-secondary systems across the country are working with ACUE to support and strengthen the faculty role in student success. There is a growing body of research demonstrating that ACUE-credentialed faculty report higher levels of engagement with students, and that institutions report increased student success outcomes from their courses. Read more about ACUE’s impact here.
