Inclusive Teaching in STEM – facilitated by Dean Jahnke. Registration is through My Learning Connection located in the Learning and Development card on your MSU profile
Offered this fall – Thursdays at noon starting September 7.
Here’s a tip that you can do in class today. Tell your students what office hours are for. Teachers do not have office hours in high schools and many of our students have no idea when it might be useful to visit with you. You might even include that on the announcement page of the LMS you are using.
