Twitter Ed Chats provide opportunities to share resources, crowdsource ideas, and strategize ways to further improve teaching and learning. #iteachmsu was born on Twitter as graduate student educators sought out a platform to elevate their voices and expertise in the landscape of MSU teaching and learning. Thus, the #iteachmsu Commons is committed to continuing engagement in Twitter Ed Chats as a part of our mission to foster conversation around teaching and learning at MSU.
You can flexibly join the chat anywhere you would like by engaging virtually, please know that there are a plethora of articles, posts, and groups on the #iteachmsu Commons where you can also engage in dialogue. (note: you will have to log in to iteach.msu.edu using your MSU netID to access engagement functions like sharing content, joining groups, and commenting)
To join the chat virtually, search for the hashtag “#iteachmsu” on Twitter. The prompts for this Ed Chat will be posted by the Hub for Innovation in Learning and Technology (@MSUHUB). Each question will begin with the letter “Q” followed by a number (representing the question under discussion). If responding to a given question, please begin your response with the letter “A” followed immediately by the number of the question under discussion to help others place your response in the larger chat. Also, don’t forget to add “#iteachmsu” in your tweet! Responses will come from people all over Twitter and you can reply to their answers as well!
