Facilitated by Ken Silvestri, Instructional Designer, Center for Faculty Excellence
Gather with some peers to discuss this popular book Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning. In this best-selling book, the author presents a strategy for improving student learning with a series of modest but powerful changes that make a big difference―many of which can be put into practice in a single class period.
Those attending will need to have read the book prior to the discussion and questions will be provided in advance. Also, please come with at least one discussion question or insight of your own to pose to the group. An electronic copy can be obtained through the MSU Library and signing in with your NetID and Password. If you would like to have a hard copy to read, we have 6 copies available. Please let us know if you would like a hard copy of the book by contacting Ken Silvestri at [email protected] or 406-994-7835.
Completing this workshop will earn 1 credit towards annual membership in the Center and 1 credit towards the Teaching Enhancement Certificate.

- Using active learning pedagogies to support and advance higher-level (deeper) and more engaged learning
