ACUE Blog: Small teaching changes, big learning benefits

Blog Post created by debbora.woods on Dec 22, 2016

I was recently introduced to the ACUE Community blog focused on topics for educators, including best practices for teaching, helping students learn, useful resources, and much more!

Today I ran across this blog post with videos of an interview with Mary-Ann Winkelmes, Coordinator of Instructional Development and Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where she provides some great tips for faculty as they prepare over the winter break for classes in January. Here are some of the highlights:

  • How good work examples help students succeed in college
  • The basics of transparent instruction
  • Talking about tasks with your students
  • Creating a criteria checklist
  • And more!

Enjoy these helpful tips and have a wonderful holiday break!


We'll see you next year :-)
