As we’ve recently welcomed our 21st president and with a new academic year upon us, it’s a great time to try something new (to our little book club) - an invitation!

By: Summer Issawi, Alicia Jenner, and Sarah Gretter

When one of our team mates pitched the idea to of starting a book club to fellow Hub colleagues we were all in. We started the #MSUHubBookClub (as mentioned in a previous post) this past February and spend 4-5 weeks reading a book before we meet at the beginning of the month to discuss.

Scholarship Opportunities and Looking Forward

So much of teaching work is invisible. It's hard, and it's inspiring, and we find ourselves back at square one as often (if not more often) than we find ourselves advancing to square two. And that's how it has to be if we're going to ask tough questions and engage in the necessary inquiry required when an institution works to shift from looking at the now to looking at tomorrow.

One of the most important functions of the Hub is connecting people and ideas to opportunities to share and grow (and meet more people and generate more ideas!). To that end, I’m writing to share an opportunity that came through 2018 Hub Fellow (and 2019 College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Excellence in Teaching New Teacher Award winner) Aaron McKim.

Connecting the Dots with Enacted Mental Models

By William Heinrich, Director of Assessment

Summer is over us and campuses welcomed new cohorts of eager students in our (hopefully air-conditioned) classrooms and offices.
