CAFFE INSTITUTE: University Graduate Certification in College Teaching Institute

Interested in completing the Certification in College Teaching Program? The Graduate School invites you to an intensive program that will 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, using assessment in the classroom, creating learning environments for adult learners, and creating a professional development plan for teaching in 2- and 4-year institutions. Through a combination of interactive group sessions and focused breakouts, you will gain skills in core competency areas of the Certification, AND you will plan your teaching project and develop the template for your final portfolio, to be completed in the 2011-2012 academic year. Writing reflections for the portfolio will be incorporated into the workshop. The Certification is designed for doctoral students preparing to teach as faculty members in a college or university. Students who successfully complete all CCTP requirements will receive a designation of the Certification on their transcript. The CCTP culminates in an e-portfolio that will help students prepare for academic job interviews and plan for their professional development as early career faculty.
