Behavior System Integration Workshop


The behavior system developed for the ACE Bridge Semester is an integral cornerstone of the program. This workshop explains the principles of the ACE behavior system and how it is effectively implemented. Participants will also learn how to integrate courses and coordinate assignments for a more successful semester.


Who Should Attend

All instructors teaching in the ACE program are required to attend this workshop prior to teaching in ACE for the first time. Experienced ACE instructors are also welcome.



The goal of the workshop is to provide ACE faculty with a common framework and consistent set of tools that encourage positive behavior and address disruptive behavior, supporting conditions in the classroom for optimal learning.

A typical session agenda includes:

  • Discuss ACE’s Inside-Out philosophy
  • Explain in detail the core Behavior System
  • Explore supplemental strategies and tools
  • Apply the Behavior System to typical scenarios
  • Briefly review approaches to coordinate individual course content
