We’re excited to announce a new partnership with the University of Nevada, Reno, whose faculty launched the Course in Effective Teaching Practices last month. UNR joins a growing national initiative to expand effective teaching, launched collaboratively by ACUE and the American Council on Education.
As part of UNR’s new program, instructors will develop and practice research-based teaching techniques shown to make classrooms more engaging, civil and embracing of diversity. This week, UNR faculty are focusing on the “Embracing Diversity in Your Classroom” course module, which recommends techniques to create an inclusive classroom environment.

“Preparing students for global citizenship starts with instructional excellence,” Kevin Carman, executive vice president and provost at the University, said. “This partnership with ACUE recognizes and supports the role that effective instruction plays in student success and is central to our University’s mission.”
The University’s new faculty development program includes a course in Effective Teaching Practices, which develops research-based teaching techniques shown to make classrooms more engaging, civil and embracing of diversity. Research shows that students learn more, persist in their studies, and complete their degrees with access to evidence-based instructional practices.
