Learn evidence-based practices for designing more equitable and learner-centered course outcomes with aligned assessments, assignments, and learning experiences that prepare students for success. In addition, you’ll learn to use grading practices and syllabi design in support of equity.
ACUE’s microcredential in Designing Learner-Centered and Equitable Courses fully supports both instructors who are building a course from the ground up as well as those teaching a predesigned course.
This microcredential is focused on working with your course documents, applying the concepts learned in the modules, and reflecting on the process. You will learn with a professionally facilitated online cohort of faculty members, with whom you will share insights and ideas. The program takes six to eight weeks to complete.
Competencies addressed in this course are aligned with ACUE’s Effective Practice Framework:
- Ensuring Learner-Centered Course Outcomes

- Creating Equity with Checklists and Rubrics
