Co-Host a NISOD/ACUE Seminar

Seeking Co-Host Colleges

Would your college like to serve as a co-host college for a NISOD/ACUE Seminar?

NISOD and the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) offer onsite, interactive, and facilitated Seminars that are blended with ACUE’s online learning modules.

NISOD/ACUE seminars are a great way to introduce your faculty to ACUE’s comprehensive and proven instructional approach. At colleges nationwide, student outcomes are stronger and achievement gaps are closed among students taught by ACUE credentialed faculty!
