Teaching & Learning Center


SPOTLIGHT K-State is a showcase event highlighting excellence in innovative, creative, unique teaching on our campus. The event is a fast-paced informative format with speakers who are each introduced by one of their students. The presenters are selected from teaching faculty across our university representing many colleges, teaching ranks and curricula. Each presenter provides a visual portrayal illustrating their topic which is presented in a very short time frame, around 6 minutes. Often they begin with a problem encountered in their teaching followed by an inventive successful solution. 
SPOTLIGHT was originally conceived by Mike Wesch, Chad Jackson and Jana Fallin. 


Save the date! Eleven K-State faculty members will share their lessons learned from their experiences with students at the 2020 SPOTLIGHT K-State at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 3, in Forum Hall at the K-State Union. #SPOTLIGHTKSTATE2020
