Faculty Development Course for Inclusive Excellence



ACUE Course in Inclusive Teaching through Equitable Learning (ITEL)

Weber State University is excited to offer faculty the opportunity to participate in the professional development course Inclusive Teaching for Equitable Learning (ITEL) offered by the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE). 

Beginning on January 23, 2023, the course consists of five modules that are nearly completely asynchronous, and will be completed by March 27, 2023. Average time commitment in completing the course is 2-3 hours every two weeks. Upon completion of this course you will earn a microcredential and digital badge which can be added to curriculum vitae, used in online teaching portfolios, and displayed on LinkedIn profiles or webpages as a sign of your achievement. This course also has the potential to weigh quite favorably in the tenure and promotion process, as it strongly aligns with Weber State's commitment to inclusivity and access.

ACUE’s courses address a comprehensive set of evidence-based teaching practices shown to promote student success. In ACUE’s ITEL course, faculty learn teaching practices for developing students’ sense of belonging, ensuring course materials are accessible, developing appreciation for diverse viewpoints, understanding how diversity aids in innovation, and setting expectations for productive dialogue.

The course’s five (5) modules support faculty in:

  • Managing the Impact of Bias

  • Reducing Microaggressions in Learning Environments

  • Addressing Imposter Phenomenon and Stereotype Threat

  • Creating Inclusive Learning Environments

  • Designing Equity-centered Courses
