Hudson County Community College will host an inaugural, credit-bearing regional seminar supporting faculty use of evidence-based teaching practices.
“Engaging and Supporting Under-prepared Students” is a collaboration of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development and the Association of College and University Educators, and will focus on advancing student and faculty success through quality instruction at community and technical colleges nationwide.
The seminar will be held on Nov. 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the HCCC Culinary Conference Center, 161 Newkirk St. in Jersey City. Laurie Pendleton, executive director of assessment at ACUE, will facilitate the seminar.
Seminar participants will learn about and implement teaching practices aligned to ACUE’s Effective Practice Framework – a statement of the core instructional competencies every college educator should possess, according to HCCC – which was independently validated and is endorsed by the American Council on Education. Faculty who satisfy the seminar requirements, which include implementing at least two evidence-based teaching practices and writing reflections about their experience, will earn credit toward a Certificate in Effective College Instruction, a credential co-endorsed by ACUE and the American Council on Education.
