Magna Quest addresses the needs of the current landscape of higher education with 5 Credentials and 17 Proficiencies covering critical topics, including course design, teaching strategies, student engagement, diversity and inclusion, and technology for teaching.

Each program provides practical skills and knowledge that faculty can immediately apply in the classroom. Magna Quest’s curriculum videos and supporting material were developed specifically for college faculty by national teaching experts. On-campus program facilitators receive support and resources from Magna Publications to ensure success as Magna Quest Campus Coaches.
