MSU Faculty:
Are you interested in learning more about teaching techniques designed to engage the students in your class? Would you like to see these techniques demonstrated by another faculty member willing to share his or her expertise with you?

CETL has lined up four MSU faculty members who are willing to welcome you into their classrooms this semester, so that you may observe them in the act of engaged teaching. They are:
