Engage the Center
The Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation (CTLI) helps individuals, units, and departments define and achieve their teaching and learning goals. We use fellowships, grants, workshops, and consultations to custom-designed solutions.
#iteachmsu Commons: SHARE
iteach.msu.edu is an online space for educators across roles to share ideas and resources, connect with others across MSU, and grow their teaching practice through community-driven content and asynchronous conversation.
Network & Affiliates
We know there are diverse efforts already underway to support educators at different levels across the university. We intend to collaborate with and help amplify those. The CTLI will use a networked approach, keeping a core team supporting educator efforts centrally while working closely and collaboratively with center affiliates in colleges, departments, and units across campus. This model includes an understanding of what the educator support network looks like on campus where the CTLI can serve a connective function and help form a diverse group ready to consult on topics as needed. More information on identifying yourself as a member of the educator support network as well as our formalized “affiliate” partnerships to come.
The Faculty Fellows program provides an opportunity for faculty to work on a project that will improve the learning experience for students at MSU. Successful topics will address one or more of the following issues: enable the faculty member to initiate a project designed to reimagine a learning experience at MSU; help to create an intellectual community interested in student learning; support directed research and development focused on learning with technology.
By supporting educator professional development, the CTLI, within its broader educator support network, is helping to innovate and improve teaching, learning, and student success at MSU. Graduate fellows will explore spaces where educators come to learn and think differently about teaching and learning, while building and exercising skills in design, facilitation, and collaboration. CTLI Fellows’ work contributes to real outcomes that impact campus.
