Welcome to the Project ACES LibGuide, a resource sharing site for SSU departments supporting the Project ACES Pilot.
ACES course characteristics:
Decrease dropout/fail/withdraw rates by increasing student support and engagement
Incorporate active and collaborative learning techniques
Incorporate enriching education experiences (defined by NSSE as diversity experiences, internships, civic engagement, learning communities, and applying course content and skills to authentic situations).
Focus on improved student critical thinking.
Tie course objectives to assessment that continuously monitors student learning and modifies the course as necessary.
Incorporate innovative approaches to introduce students to new material, so class time can be used increasingly for critical thinking and high level cognitive tasks.
Provide superior learning outcomes at a cost per student equal to or less than current levels by deploying resources and technology in efficient and cost effective ways.
