Host an Onsite Credit-Bearing Seminar
for up to 100 Faculty
The Career Leadership Collective, in collaboration with the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE), is pleased to offer onsite credit-bearing seminars designed specifically to prepare college educators in teaching excellence and guiding students to rewarding careers.
Professional Development for Faculty and Instructors on Career Guidance and Career Readiness
The Collective and ACUE were delighted to develop ACUE’s course in career guidance and readiness together to prepare faculty and instructors to integrate career guidance into their classes and design assignments that cultivate the soft skills we know employers are seeking.
Credit-bearing seminars deliver high-quality and high-impact learning experiences for faculty members and instructors. These seminars also provide faculty and instructors with a unique, blended-learning opportunity to earn digital badges as credit toward ACUE’s Certificate in Effective College Instruction, a nationally recognized credential endorsed by and co-issued with the American Council on Education (ACE).

Embedding Career Guidance Into Your Course
Faculty learn how to guide students in exploring majors, internships, and career options; create opportunities for students to interact with alumni and upper-level peers; and make explicit the relevance of course learning outcomes to students’ future goals.
Developing Students’ Career-Ready Skills
Faculty also learn how to develop assignments, projects, and activities that equip students with the skills they need for personal and professional success, including collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving, written and oral communication, and project management.
