 Instructor Jumpstart: Part 1 Online

Join the Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation (CTLI)- in partnership with the Office for Faculty and Academic Staff Development (OFASD)- for a two part introduction to high-level topics related to quality, inclusive teaching at Michigan State University. Each session in “Instructor Jumpstart” is a ninety-minute presentation, co-facilitated by two of CTLI’s Educational Developers.
