The Center for Applied Inclusive Teaching and Learning in the Arts and Humanities (CAITLAH) is a College of Arts and Letters (CAL) initiative at MSU committed to advancing effective and transformative teaching practices. We do this through our research on languages, texts, and cultures within and across boundaries of difference. We do this in our collaborations with teachers and faculty, developing new insights into curricular design, pedagogy, and creative assessments aimed at engaging all learners.



CAITLAH’s director Dr. Cushman, is coeditor of Research in the Teaching of English (RTE). Read the article about their work recently featured on The Department of Writing Rhetoric and American Cultures' website.


Join CAL faculty and teachers from China to exchange ideas. Hear about what expectations structure learning, teaching, and schooling across cultures. Read about our workshop HERE.
