A picture is worth a thousand words..      

Built in 1900, the Industrial Education building is MSU's oldest existing building. Formerly known as the Textile Building, it is now home to the College of Education's Instructional Systems & Workforce Development department, and our National Research and Training Center on Blindness and Low Vision, the only U.S. Department of Education-funded center focused on employment outcomes of persons with blindness or low vision.

Meet the Staff
Amy Cade Bass- Lecturer, The Learning Center. Originally from DeKalb, Bass received her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and her master's of Instructional Technology. Bass currently teaches College Reading and Study Skills, and Praxis Academic Core Enrichment (Praxis I) through The Learning Center. Bass said the most important advice she would give to students is, "Be a problem solver. Life is challenging. Always has been, always will be. Those who are successful have developed the ability to “think”. When faced with problems or challenges, figure it out. Be a problem solver!" Interesting Fact: Bass is quite outdoorsy! Bass and her family often enjoy spending weekends in the country fishing and hiking where she grew up and spend a lot of their time during the week at t-ball, soccer and tennis games.
