The Association of College & University Educators (ACUE) has selected two Elon faculty to include in their online Course in Effective Teaching Practices, which features 22 experts in college instruction and showcases footage of exemplary instruction by 52 faculty members across colleges and universities nationwide.

Last spring, ACUE film crews came to campus to record interviews and teaching demonstrations with two associate professors from Elon’s College of Arts & Sciences: Tony Crider, associate professor of physics, is filmed with students in a course module about using concept maps and other visualization tools, and Sophie Adamson, associate professor of French, figures in course modules focused on promoting a civil learning environment, developing and using rubrics, and providing useful feedback.

ACUE and the American Council on Education have partnered to launch the course in a national effort to advance effective college instruction and support student motivation and success. The initiative aims to provide tools and resources that are accessible to wide-ranging institutions that may not have teaching and learning centers.
