Planning your syllabus or office programs for Spring 2022? Don't Cancel that Class is a program run by the VOICE Center, the advocacy center for survivors of interpersonal violence. The program allows professors to schedule a VOICE Center presentation for their classes. The program is perfect for professors who will be absent as they attend conferences and want their classes to meet during their absence. The VOICE Center can tailor the presentation to topics specific to each class such as climate change and interpersonal violence, trauma-informed care for medical professionals, or the presentation can focus on consent, bystander intervention, etc.
Conference proposals are due January 24th!

Faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals for a wide array of teaching and learning topics relating to any teaching modality (F2F, hybrid, hyflex, videoconference, online, blended). Faculty development and student services proposals are welcome.

The tradition continues. We look forward to gathering with MSU faculty, staff, graduate students, and Bozeman community members to enjoy food and beverages, listen to music, and explore the services offered by MSU Library and our partners. Our theme this year will be a bit different. In the past, we’ve chosen themes centered on classic works of literature, but for 2022, we will broadly celebrate the theme of reading. We've asked partners to select a book and we'll celebrate the joy and importance of reading in our personal, intellectual, and professional lives.
In this section, we are posting some short articles with practical teaching tips:
If you have a teaching tip related to teaching in a blended or online format to share in this section, please send a description and any related resources or examples to [email protected]
