Please join the Center for Teaching and Learning in congratulating 30 of our University of Texas faculty for earning a nationally recognized teaching credential co-endorsed by the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) and the American Council on Education (ACE). To earn their credential, these faculty took part in a yearlong, 25-module course in Effective Teaching Practices which required them to implement new, evidence-based practices in their own classrooms along the way. These course takers have demonstrated outstanding commitment to their students’ learning and their own teaching. Well done!!
