Daytona State College is excited to offer its faculty the opportunity to participate in and pursue a Certificate in Effective Online College Instruction, the only college teaching credential endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE).

Four micro-credentials (offered over the course of an academic year) prepare faculty with evidence-based teaching practices proven to increase student achievement and close equity gaps. The courses are also in alignment with our mission to:

  • Emphasize student success,
  • Embrace excellence in diversity,
  • Foster innovation to enhance teaching and learning.

ACUE courses feature digital badging providing an easy way to document a commitment to instructional excellence. Badges can be added to your curriculum vitae, used in online teaching portfolios, and displayed on LinkedIn profiles or web pages as a sign of your achievement.

Structure of the Training

Modules (25 in total) are combined into four micro-credential courses. Once all four are completed, participants will earn a Certificate in Effective {Online} College Instruction. Most of these different micro-credentials are either focused on the face-to-face classroom or virtual learning environments. The four courses are: 

  • Promoting Active Learning
  • Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Learning Environment
  • Inspiring Inquiry and Preparing Lifelong Learning
  • Designing Student-Centered Courses

For more information, please visit the ACUE micro-credential courses and content webpage.

Modality

The course will make extensive use of an online platform for the delivery of content and is presented asynchronously. During the course, faculty will think about their own course, attempt to implement new or expanded skills, and reflect on the effectiveness of those changes. ACUE estimates faculty will spend 2-3 hours per week on coursework.

Eligibility and Application

The ACUE enrollment period begins now! All full-time and part-time faculty will be eligible but there is a limit to the number of participants. You can (and are encouraged to) sign up for more than one course.
