Contributors to ACE’s Teaching and Learning Scholarship

December 30, 1899

 

For nearly a century, ACE has committed itself to preparing campus leaders, supporting the work of colleges and universities and assisting institutions in strengthening student learning, persistence, and completion.

Effective teaching is a critical component of a student’s educational experience, and we believe a quality instructional experience contributes to student achievement—retention, persistence and success—and improves overall institutional efficiency.

ACE has engaged scholars and expert practitioners as Distinguished Teaching and Learning Advisers in its collaborative efforts to advance effective teaching scholarship and practice.

 

ACE and Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Collaboration
ACUE Logo

ACE and ACUE in March 2016 launched a national effort to advance effective college instruction in order to enhance student success.

ACUE developed an online Course in Effective Teaching Practices—comprised of 25 online teaching modules aligned with ACUE’s Effective Practice Framework™—as a scalable solution to help teaching and learning centers reach greater numbers of faculty. This online, cohort-based Course provides research-based content and a reflective experience for instructors, which complement programming and activities offered by teaching and learning centers.

As part of the ACE-ACUE collaboration, ACE drew upon its decades-long experience in quality assurance to review and evaluate the Course that ACUE had developed. ACE is grateful to the 23 independent experts who participated in evaluating the modules to ensure the quality and supporting research of ACUE’s program.

ACE and Strada Education Network Collaboration to Improve Post-Secondary Pedagogy

To further our work on effective teaching, ACE is collaborating with Strada Education Network to research the connections between instructional quality and student outcomes. A critical component of this work is on elevating the important role faculty development plays in supporting students. This collaboration has already led to white papers on the connections between instructional quality and student outcomes and institutional efficiency.

This research will unpack the intended goals, impacts and outcomes of and measurement methods for assessing faculty development. ACE will produce a publication on the assessment of faculty development impact and outcomes and an applied framework that ties faculty development impact to available resources and expected outcomes. Additionally, we will conduct an impact study on a select group of institutions that implement assessment practices identified in the publication.

To assist with this work, ACE has engaged and is appreciative of the contribution of a group of respected teaching and learning scholars and practitioners on this research, which will be available in fall 2017.
