Instructional Briefings

This initiative provides access to MSU teaching award winners and former Lilly Teaching Fellows who have agreed to discuss focused issues in teaching and learning with their colleagues by email, phone or in person.  Instructional Briefings are designed to complement the array of Instructional Consultation Services that are offered by F&OD by offering access to outstanding teachers across the disciplines.
