"Welcome to My Classroom" Series: Makena Neal
"Welcome to My Classroom" Series: Makena Neal Online
Please join the Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation as we showcase some of MSU's educators and the great work they are doing. Step into a virtual space alive with enthusiasm and curiosity as passionate educators unveil their most effective teaching methods. From technology integration and active learning strategies to inventive assessments, each presenter offers a glimpse into their teaching journey, providing attendees with a collection of adaptable ideas. Engage in discussions, ask questions, and connect with peers to cultivate a collaborative spirit that transcends disciplines.
The third in the Welcome to My Classroom series will feature Makena Neal, PhD, an educational developer with CTLI. Makena will use her hour to walk fellow educators through the two activities she uses to start a semester-long class. She’ll share how she designed an experience to introduce her syllabus (without reading it verbatim) and help learners get to know one another. The second is an activity Makena adapted from her time working as an educator with MSU Extension, where she gives learners a voice in setting community values for the term. Both of these activities were intentionally designed to establish a culture in the classroom, model Makena’s educator philosophy, and set the tone for the rest of the class’ time together.
Our Welcome to My Classroom series aims to be a catalyst for continuous improvement, uniting educators in their commitment to elevate the art of teaching. Join us in celebrating the dedication and creativity that drive education forward, as we learn from one another and collectively enrich the learning experience for both educators and students alike.
The "Welcome to My Classroom" series will function like a pedagogy and practice show and tell where educators from throughout MSU's ecosystem share something from their teaching and learning practice. Examples of an educator's showcase could include a walk through of a specific activity or assignment, sharing out the integration of a particular educational technology, describing their process of redesigning a learning experience, and more!
