About the Session


1. What innovative teaching methods do you use?

2. What resources are required to implement this method?

3. What challenges are you facing?


Innovative teaching can be difficult, but there is much we can learn from one another. This workshop is intended to provide a forum for MSU STEM faculty to share information on the teaching techniques they use in their classes. 

We ask all participants to reflect on the three questions above, and come prepared to share your successes and challenges with your colleagues. 

The six MSU STEM faculty listed, who have implemented novel teaching practices into their MSU courses, will facilitate the workshop.  Come prepared to participate in a stimulating and productive discussion.
