About the Effective Teaching Practices Course

The Course prepares you to implement essential practices shown to improve student outcomes by showcasing exemplary teaching on campuses nationwide and featuring interviews with leading experts in college instruction. Each module introduces a specific topic and evidence-based technique to try out immediately and ends with a reflection on that technique. There are 28 online modules from the following five themes.

  • Designing an Effective Course and Class,
  • Establishing a Productive Learning Environment,
  • Using Active Learning Techniques,
  • Promoting Higher Order Thinking, and
  • Assessing to Inform Instruction and Promote Learning.
     

The Course is the first course designed for higher education faculty that leads to a nationally-recognized Certificate in Effective College Instruction endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE).  A recent study from Johns Hopkins University speaks to the impact of this program at Miami-Dade College where student evaluations were higher and faculty confidence and effectiveness were increased.
