This quote from last year’s attendee, Rebecca Dingus (Kent State, 2014) is representative of the experience, “The MMA Doc Consortium is a valuable experience for any doctoral student. Wonderful faculty mentors, guidance and tips for success in the classroom, and even teaching demonstrations and training–this unique consortium expanded my passion for teaching.”
