Teaching Effectiveness for Adjuncts at Maricopa (TEAM) Fellowship
The Teaching Effectiveness for Adjuncts at Maricopa (TEAM) Fellowship is a two-semester 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 earn a nationally recognized Certificate 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 your curriculum vitae, used in online teaching portfolios, and displayed on LinkedIn profiles or webpages as a sign of your achievement.
The course promotes teaching techniques for both face-to-face and online instruction from the following five units of study: Designing an Effective Course, Establishing a Productive Learning Environment, Using Active Learning Strategies, Promoting Higher Order Thinking, and Assessing to Inform Instruction and Promote Learning.

The partnership between ACUE and MCCCD has gained national attention. By December 2021, the first two cohorts (A and B) will have graduated as the highest performing cohorts in the Western United States in 2020-2021! We’re so proud of the dedicated adjunct faculty that chose to participate in the fellowship program.
