Hannah Madonna, arts and humanities librarian at Cook Library, has been selected as a faculty fellow in the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) Faculty Development Institute. In the fall of 2024, Madonna will begin the Promoting Engaged and Active Learning course where she will be exposed to empirical research on teaching and learning as well as provided specific teaching strategies to practice or consider.

ACUE Faculty fellows invest time (1) individually working through online interactive modules, (2) exploring at least one technique in a class during the week, and (3) joining together each week as a group for a facilitated discussion on that week's topic. At the end the course, Madonna will receive an ACUE/USM Certificate from the Center for Faculty Development as well as a badge from ACUE, indicating her successful completion of that stage of training.

The ACUE Faculty Development Institute at Southern Miss is an intensive professional development program offered to enhance teaching practices. The Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) was founded by leaders in higher education to advance instruction, support college educators, and promote student success. ACUE helps colleges and universities achieve their goals for students through innovative faculty development partnerships and a research-based Course in Effective Teaching Practices.
