Active Collaborative Engagement Strategies (ACES) Film Series

The ACES project focuses on “Active, Collaborative Engagement Strategies” across multiple disciplines. The purpose of the ACES project is to showcase strategies that engage students in an active and collaborative learning environment with the goal of increasing student success.

We hope that faculty will enjoy extending their own effective practices as they see how others across campus engage students in a variety of ways. While we recognize that this initial offering is just a small sampling of strategies and approaches, the films not only showcase methodology but also student perspectives and a variety of programs across campus. Enjoy!

The Title V Grant and the Cypress College Media Arts Design Department (MAD) Digital Cinema Program collaborated to develop the ACES Video Series. Ian Holmes, the MAD Coordinator, produced and directed the videos. MAD student film crews filmed and edited digital video of classroom instructors using ACE strategies. Members of the Title V Grant Team developed the glossary of ACE strategies.

These videos were developed with funds awarded to Cypress College by the U.S. Department of Education under the Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions Program (Title V). However, the contents of these videos do not necessarily represent the policies of the Department of Education and one should not assume any endorsement by the federal government.
