Certification in College Teaching Program (CCTP)
: The CCTP is an initiative of the Graduate School, in partnership with MSU Colleges, that helps graduate students and postdocs organize, develop, and document their teaching experiences. Through a series of focused workshops, a class on disciplinary teaching methods, and a mentored project, participants will build and consolidate their preparation for college and university teaching. The program culminates with the development of an e-portfolio that will help students prepare for academic job interviews and plan for their professional development as early career faculty.
