We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce our collaboration with Dr. Bonni Stachowiak and the Teaching in Higher Ed (TiHE) podcast. Welcome, Bonni! Great discussion is the mainstay of learning, and Bonni is one of the best conversationalists we know. As creator and host of TiHE, her 174 episodes (and counting!) share insights through informative and fun interviews with leading experts, including ACUE’s own chief academic officer, Penny MacCormack. More and more people are tuning into podcasts for news, information, and entertainment. It’s another way we can expand the national conversation about the importance of effective college teaching.
“When we discovered how many former Teaching in Higher Ed guests had also been featured in ACUE’s Course in Effective Teaching Practices, we knew that our beliefs about great teaching were in alignment,” Bonni said. “Since those early conversations, ACUE has introduced me to even more phenomenal educators. I am excited about the ways we will be able work together to allow for more high quality learning experiences in higher education.”
As part of ACUE and TiHE’s new collaboration, we’ll be blogging about popular conversations, hosting expert Q&As, and adding sights to the sounds with video excerpts from ACUE’s course library. ACUE members and podcast fans alike can look forward to these free resources as part of ACUE’s upcoming Expert Dive series.
