Enter the MSU AT&T Instructional Technology Awards by Feb. 2

To enhance teaching and learning, MSU holds the AT&T Instructional Technology Awards program encouraging best practices in the use of instructional technology across campus.

MSU faculty, instructors, and teaching assistants should submit entry forms by Friday, February 2, 2018, before 5 p.m.

“The awards help spread effective practice and share the outstanding work of our colleagues,” says Brendan Guenther, Director for Academic Technology.


The AT&T Faculty-Staff Awards competition recognizes outstanding contributions to the use and development of information technology for teaching and learning in credit-bearing courses at MSU.

First place awards will be given for the:

  • best online course,
  • best blended course, and
  • best use of technology to enhance an online, blended, flipped, or in-person course.

This awards program is funded by AT&T and coordinated by MSU Information Technology, the Hub for Innovation in Learning, and Teaching, and the Academic Advancement Network.

MSU faculty, instructors, and teaching assistants are encouraged to enter the AT&T Faculty-Staff Instructional Technology Awards Competition. Specifically, we are looking for instructors who use technology in teaching for online courses or to enhance in-person or “flipped” courses.
