COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus State University and the Muscogee County School District are embarking on an unprecedented partnership designed to improve the level of teaching and learning while preparing local students for today's workforce.

E-3: Engage, Equip, Energize is a two-day event that involves almost 200 teachers, professors, deans, principals, and other education leaders.

Doctor Tom Hackett with Columbus State University says this conference is all about finding new and interesting ways to teach students.
