Location: 
MSU Union Ballroom; 49 Abbot Rd, East Lansing, MI 48824

The Graduate School invites you to an intensive program that will help fulfill the workshop portion of the requirements for the MSU CCTP. Over the course of two days, featured speakers will focus on teaching with technology, assessing student learning outcomes, creating effective learning environments through writing, and developing teaching portfolios for different kinds of academic institutions. Through a combination of interactive group sessions and focused breakouts, you will gain skills in core competency areas of the Certification, plan a mentored teaching project, and develop the template for your final portfolio. Participants must attend both full days of the Institute.

The Certification is designed for doctoral students and postdocs preparing to become faculty members in a college or university. The CCTP culminates in an e-portfolio that will help participants prepare for academic job interviews and plan for their professional development as early career faculty. Doctoral students who successfully complete all requirements will receive a designation of the Certification on their MSU transcript; postdocs receive a letter from the provost recognizing their completion of the CCTP.
