Teaching and Learning
This is a growing collection of modules for MSU Extension employees who develop or deliver educational content.

Extension professionals are adult educators, guided by principles of adult learning and adept at using learning activities that actively involve participants in their learning, build on their expertise, and have immediate impact on their lives. Below are links to four documents that can help you make your programs more 'learningful.' Just because you're teaching doesn't mean they're learning!
- Adult Learning & Teaching is a PDF that summarizes five key learning principles and presents dozens of ideas for actively engaging the learners and anchoring the learning in their memories.
- Angelo, T.A. (1993). "A Teacher's dozen: Fourteen General, Research-Based Principles for Improving Higher Learning in our Classrooms." American Association of Higher Education Bulletin.
- The Center for Teaching at Vanderbilt University has excellent teaching guides.
- #iteachmsu is a platform, a movement, and a hashtag meant to create connection among educators at MSU. Share, connect, and learn!
