The Maricopa Center for Learning and Innovation (MCLI) is thrilled to announce that for the third year in a row we have two cohorts enrolled in the Effective Teaching Practices program as part of the new Teaching Effectiveness for Adjuncts at Maricopa (TEAM) Fellowship that started in Fall 2020 in partnership with the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE). This year’s cohorts have a total of 63 adjunct faculty representing all 10 colleges in the District.
The TEAM Fellowship is a nine-month program that prepares adjunct faculty (TEAM Fellows) in evidence-based teaching practices proven through independently-validated research to improve student achievement and close equity gaps. TEAM Fellows who complete the program are nationally certified in Effective College Instruction, the only college teaching credential endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE), and earn digital badges, which can be added to their curriculum vitae, used in online teaching portfolios, and displayed on LinkedIn profiles or webpages as a sign of their achievement.
Of the thousands of faculty who have enrolled in ACUE's courses:
94% found the course content relevant to their work
94% found the course helpful in refining their teaching practice
88% would recommend the course to a colleague
