Partnerships Growing in the Garden State

Four public colleges and universities in New Jersey have joined a statewide initiative to make effective instruction a priority. Essex County College, Montclair State University, New Jersey City University, and Rutgers University—Newark have partnered with ACUE to help their faculty strengthen their instruction.

Last week, New Jersey City University launched ACUE’s Course in Effective Teaching Practices. The course-taking cohort of nearly 30 faculty kicked off the program with a day-long orientation session across three NJCU campuses. The photos above are some scenes from the day’s activities, which included think-pair-shares, dynamic videos, and an in-depth overview of the Course learning experience. NJCU faculty also shared their goals for strengthening their instruction with ACUE: from sustaining motivation in the middle of the semester to engaging students when they appear “fried.”

Not far away in the Garden State, Montclair State University is preparing to launch its own program, when faculty will begin taking the Course in Effective Teaching Practices. Essex County College and Rutgers University—Newark were founding pilot partners with ACUE last year.
