We at the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) realize faculty across higher ed are in the homestretch of a challenging fall. We are grateful for the resiliency you’ve shown to help your students continue to thrive! Behind every resilient student is a resilient educator.
Last month, Professor Benny Ng was looking for material to welcome his new students to Chem 60 at Los Angeles Pierce College. Ng had recently started ACUE’s course in Effective Online Teaching Practices and completed the first module, Welcoming Student to Online Learning. He wanted to create a lighthearted welcome video to assuage his students’ fears about online learning—and encourage them to read the syllabus. That’s when he stumbled upon a short video of Snoop Dogg circulating on social media.
