Working through the Administrator and Faculty Toolkit to Recognize and Understand Effective Teaching and Learning – @MSUHub @CANRatMSU @CALMSU @HuMetricsHSS

This morning we held the second workshop to refine the Administrator and Faculty Toolkit designed to help us more effectively recognize and value effective teaching and learning at MSU.

This important initiative is designed to provide a framework to better support and evaluate teaching and learning as a core value of Michigan State University. It was fascinating and heartening to have artists, scientists, and humanists talking about the importance of effective teaching to the educational mission of the University.

One powerful dimension of the toolkit is its emphasis on reflective practice. We spent good amount of time this morning talking about how faculty are putting their pedagogical commitments into concrete practice in their syllabi.

(This connects to the work of the HuMetricsHSS team on how core values are embodied in syllabi.)
