Each fall, the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning presents the Showcase on Teaching and Learning to highlight innovative teaching and learning principles developed and applied by Missouri State's Academic Community.  The showcase presents a unique opportunity for faculty to gain insight and perspectives on classroom teaching and student learning through a variety of seminars and workshops.

The event features multiple concurrent presentations and a professional poster session to showcase effective teaching practices leading to student learning. The morning sessions conclude with a buffet lunch and a keynote presentation by a nationally recognized academic professional.

Event Schedule

Plenary Session 8 - 8:50 a.m.

MSU Learning Management System (LMS) Transition 

The Showcase on Teaching and Learning kicks off with an informational session about the upcoming exciting changes to the Learning Management System:  D2L Brightspace.  

During the 2023-2024 academic year we will be learning this new system and moving courses from Blackboard Learn to Brightspace.

This plenary session will introduce you to Brightspace and share information about upcoming training, transition plans, and timelines. You will also hear from early adopter faculty that will be using Brightspace teaching their courses this fall.
