Abstract: This Course ensured that faculty learned about—and implemented—the approaches that improve engagement and persistence and promote deeper learning. This 25-module online course concentrated on teaching practices effective in face-to-face instruction. Comprehensive in scope and organized around five units of study, faculty members learned together in cohorts and implement approaches to:
- design an effective course and class
- establish a productive learning environment
- use active learning techniques
- promote higher order thinking, and assess in ways that inform instruction and promote deeper levels of learning
Each interdisciplinary cohort is facilitated by a celebrated CSUSB faculty member. Our local facilitators are 2019 Outstanding Lecturer, Donna Gotch from Communication Studies (Cohorts A & B) and 2012 Outstanding Professor, Todd Jennings from Teacher Education and Foundations (Cohort C).
Completing the Course leads to a nationally-recognized Certificate in Effective Instruction which is co-endorsed by ACUE and the American Council on Education (ACE). In addition, the American Council on Education’s Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has recommended this Course for 3 semester graduate-level credit units.
