Engaged Teaching and Learning in 21st Century Higher Education

Registration now open
Course platform opens: 5 November 2021

Higher education institutions around the world are being asked to make student learning more active and relevant. What does that mean for instruction? How can instructors transform their teaching? How can research inform new practices in ways that are practicable in your own setting? We invite lecturers, instructors, professors, curriculum designers, and higher education administrators to join an innovative, online professional learning program. This program introduces participants to innovations in teaching, and builds their capacity to rethink and revise their curricular and instructional practices. It offers an opportunity for teams of colleagues to explore and apply new methods of pedagogy and assessment in their institutions.

Please contact Dr. Julie Sinclair at sincla53@msu.edu if you have any questions.

Two live Question and Answer sessions available for those interested. See below for more information.
