What Is My Commitment?

The courses are delivered within an online platform for the delivery of content and are presented asynchronously. During the courses, instructors will think about their own course, attempt to implement new or expanded skills, and reflect on the effectiveness of those changes. ACUE estimates faculty will spend 2-3 hours per week on coursework.
