We need your help and share this draft strategy to invite discussion. At the bottom of both the PRACTICE and PERFORMANCE pages of this site, you’ll find a space to share your thoughts. We hope to inspire a lively conversation, and we call upon you to offer insight and recommendations.
Anchoring the Learning Design Strategy presented on this site is that MSU was founded on the visionary idea that practical knowledge can be combined with traditional scientific and classical studies to create a rigorous higher education curriculum that moves us from good to great. Michigan State University’s commitment to be excellent and accessible are embodied in our three core values of quality, inclusiveness and connectivity.
MSU’s core values have been operationalized for some time via President Simon’s Bolder by Design framework, which encourages “enhancing the student experience” and “expanding international reach.” Figure 1 suggests an institutional strategy that is anchored to our core values and supported by the Bolder by Design imperatives, and that prefaces a discussion of institutional habits (which we explore in the PRACTICE area of this site).
