Both the Hub for Innovation in Learning and Technology and the Academic Advancement Network are new to MSU. In the first part of our time together, I will provide a brief overview of each, after which we will take time for questions and conversation. In the second part, I’d like to have a structured conversation about how STEM Teaching Essentials fits within a network of teaching resources on campus, how it might contribute to that network, and what might help strengthen the impact of STEM Teaching Essentials in the future.
