Teaching & Learning

The teaching and learning function of the Academic Advancement Network is focused fundamentally on teacher learning. Our goal is to directly develop the professional proficiency of our academic colleagues and enable them to better support the success of all MSU students. We provide dynamic and responsive educator development, aligned by shared language around teaching competency areas. Through alignment and with central support, departments and colleges can co-design consistent, fulsome, credentialed, rewarded and sustainable training in teaching and learning practice for educators across roles and disciplines.
