ACUE’s mission is to ensure student success through quality instruction.

We believe that every faculty member deserves the support and preparation needed to teach well, so that every student receives an extraordinary education.

The ACUE Effective Teaching Practices Framework describes how these powerful tools can help you improve student success in your courses.

Waubonsee considers professional development critical to the growth of our faculty and providing our students with a high quality education. To demonstrate the College’s continued commitment to support faculty with meaningful professional development to advance high-quality, effective teaching practices (pedagogy/andragogy), the courses below are provided at no cost to all Waubonsee faculty. Current New Faculty Learning Academy Members and those expressing interest during the Faculty Development Days will receive a priority "seat."

If you are committed to actively engaging in these faculty learning communities, we encourage you to learn more about these professional development opportunities.

ACUE's Certificate in Effective College Instruction

"I had the pleasure of implementing twenty-four best practices in various classes. Because of ACUE, I have a more productive and inclusive learning environment. Even for seasoned faculty, there were plenty of new ideas and learning opportunities from the course material and peer discussions."

~ Andrew Clements, Instructor of Business

ACUE's Fostering a Culture of Belonging Course

"The perspectives and strategies I learned during this course helped me become a better champion for diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice. I greatly appreciate the insight, suggestions, and support provided by fellow colleagues through quality conversations and shared experiences."
