Gain proven active learning techniques to engage students, plan and facilitate discussions, and more—in the online learning environment.
More students than ever are learning online, and faculty need more than the technical basics—they must be fully prepared to use pedagogical approaches that enhance students’ online experience.
Built on the same evidence-based pedagogy outlined in ACUE’s Effective Practice Framework, ACUE’s micro-credential course, Promoting Online Active Learning, will provide you with practices to more actively engage your students in varied learning formats including small- and large-group activities, discussions, and micro-lectures.
This course is an ideal way to expand the impact of technology and instructional support offices and promote effective online instruction that leads to stronger student outcomes.
This course is organized around six competencies and takes approximately eight weeks to complete. You will learn with a professionally facilitated online cohort of faculty members, with whom you will share insights and ideas.
- Developing Effective Modules and Micro-lectures
- Teaching Powerful Note-taking Skills
- Using Groups to Ensure Active Learning
- Using the Active Learning Cycle
- Planning Effective Discussions
- Facilitating Engaging Discussions
Educators who complete the requirements for this open-enrollment course earn a micro-credential in “Promoting Online Active Learning.” This micro-credential may be utilized in meeting partial requirements necessary to earn the American Council on Education (ACE) endorsed Certificate in Effective College Instruction.
