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:
Diann Hanson, Business Administration
Pat Jorgenson, Teacher Education
Paul Lepp, Biology
Audra Myerchin, Communication Arts
Here is the April schedule, outlining the opportunities these faculty have opened up for observation or conversation. If you're interested in observing any of these classes or talking to the faculty, just let them know.

The students in Audra's COMM 218: Public Relations Principles and COMM 324: Community Relations classes are working on service learning projects much of this month. This set-up will not work well for observation, but Audra will be happy to speak with anyone who is interested in the details of how she utilizes service learning in her classes.
