The Spring meeting focused on Math courses and initiatives at MSU to highlight the importance of math for all STEM programs of study. The purpose of this meeting is to share information about math reform initiatives, both current and in development, and promote dialogue between faculty about how we prepare students for success in subsequent STEM courses.
The Center for Instructional Mentoring: Successes and Challenges
Andrew Krause, Michigan State University
As this semester wraps up, the Center for Instructional Mentoring (CIM) will celebrate its first successful year. CIM was developed last summer to centralize the efforts to support teaching practices in undergraduate mathematics courses at MSU, and has been largely successful at that endeavor. I will explain the structure of CIM, share some stories that represent the success of CIM, and welcome session participants to provide feedback and input about several challenges that we have faced through our first year.
