CUE Resources for Course Design, Assignments, and Teaching Practices

This page provides resources for faculty currently teaching CUE courses and/or faculty developing new or revising existing CUE courses. You will find resources from current and recently-taught CUE courses that illustrate exemplary language to describe/reference the CUE Defining Features in your syllabus. We also provide exemplary illustrations of CUE assignments which align with individual degree programs’ CUE Student Learning Outcomes (SLO).
