Enroll in an ACUE Cohort

You may learn about each of the different courses in our upcoming January and March cohorts, and enroll yourself using the Daytona State ACUE page. 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. To enroll in any of the January 2024 offerings, faculty must register by Monday, January 15, 2024.

Structure of ACUE courses

All cohorts offered through ACUE are fully online and asynchronous. 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. Modules (25 in total) are combined into four micro-credential courses. Once all four are completed, you will earn your 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, but all content is provided fully online asynchronously. The four courses include: 

  • Promoting Active Learning
  • Creating a Productive Learning Environment
  • Inspiring Inquiry and Preparing Lifelong Learning
  • Designing Student-Centered Courses

Snack, Share, and Seize the Opportunity

We are fast approaching the next Snack & Share event in the Faculty Innovation Center. These Snack & Share sessions are open to all faculty either in person or via Teams. View the event details below, and join us for a discussion on what the fellows and other ACUE cohort faculty members have been learning.

Time/Date Location Fellows Teams Link
Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m Daytona Campus, Nunamann Hall (Bldg. 200), second floor Aryn Davis and Pat Herndon Join Teams Session 

Let's also make it a time to embrace the chance to enroll in the upcoming ACUE courses! Our Faculty Fellows in Teaching & Learning, Aryn Davis and Pat Herndon, will be hosting the Snack & Share and can offer more information during the session. The deadlines to enroll may seem distant for now, but going ahead and securing the path to earning your Certificate in Effective [Online] College Instruction is just a click away.

For more information about ACUE micro-credentials, please visit the ACUE micro-credential courses and content webpage. As always, please reach out to the Faculty Innovation Center if you have any questions, or feel free to schedule a one-on-one appointment with an instructional designer for help. Also, if you haven't done so already please consider subscribing to this blog (top right) to stay up-to-date with the latest tips and news from your friends in the Division of Online Studies!
