Certification in College Teaching
MSU’s Graduate Certification in College Teaching (CCT) aids graduate students and postdocs in developing, organizing, documenting, and reflecting upon teaching experiences. The last two objectives are achieved via an e-portfolio. This webpage fulfills the e-portfolio requirement of the CCT, but I encourage you to explore the additional elements of my teaching e-portfolio by visiting my Teaching page.
My pedagogical learning experience can largely be traced by following my completion of the requirements of the Certification in College Teaching which in addition to the e-portfolio include the following elements:
Demonstration of Core Area Competencies via participation in workshops, seminars, and other professional develop opportunities.
Developing Discipline-Related Teaching Strategies
Creating Effective Learning Environments
Incorporating Technology in your Teaching
Understanding the University Context
Assessing Student Learning
3. Completion of a Mentored Teaching Experience
4. Development of a Teaching Philosophy Statement
