Rebuilding Hope: Teaching in the Aftermath

Further Resources and Webinar Recording 

February 17, 2023

Dear Faculty and Academic Staff, 

I am writing to share resources related to this morning’s webinar, which may now be found on the “Rebuilding Hope: Teaching in the Aftermath” webpage. The webinar recording with auto-generated captions has been made available now, due to the urgent need for this information. Our team is reviewing captions and we expect to have a fully accessible version very soon. Presentation slides have been made accessible and are available for viewing or download. 

Links to resources and additional support are included in the playlist of Resources for Teaching after a Crisis on #iteachmsu and will continue to grow. 

Responses to questions asked during the webinar (and not yet answered) will be addressed in future communications from the Office of the Provost or included in the coming days on the #iteachmsu playlist. Please feel free to provide additional questions or comments in our follow up survey to the webinar.  

Resources shared during the webinar: 

Below are additional resources you may find beneficial in support of teaching after a crisis: 

  • Lisa Laughman has prepared a special message for our community, Spartan Resilience, which provides resources to support members of the community in navigating the coming days.
  • The Spartan Resilience Training Program is offering several Reflect and Connect sessions for MSU faculty, staff, and graduate students. 
  • Dr. Alyssa Dunn will be available to engage in further discussion with individuals or groups next week. To sign up for a time to connect with Alyssa, visit the Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation (CTLI) events calendar. Dr. Dunn has kindly provided her contact information for those who wish to contact her: Alyssa Hadley Dunn, Ph.D.,  
  • Follow-up discussion opportunities with campus colleagues offered by the Office of Faculty and Academic Staff Development (FASD) are available through the CTLI events calendar.

I want to thank you all for your engagement around this crucial issue. I am grateful for your commitment to your profession, to our students, and to our shared community.
