The Center for Teaching and Learning celebrates, honors, and appreciates all Oregon State University faculty and staff! Here at CTL we provide opportunities for continuous learning through on-going professional development as means to value and support faculty and their work. Shining the light on this work is at the heart of what we do. Our goal is to recognize those committed to their teaching development and to those committed to the development of others.  

Quality Teaching at OSU

In Fall 2019, the Advancement of Teaching committee of the OSU Faculty Senate proposed a framework to represent principles encompassing multiple approaches and practices to instruction. This Quality Teaching (QT) document is currently under review by the faculty senate and is being presented to various colleges and units on campus. The QT framework encompasses three main goals and thirteen subsidiary indicators of QT. A Quality Teacher is understood to 1. Contribute to an inclusive and meaningful learning community; 2. Practice teaching as a discipline, and 3. Mentor and advise students.   

The CTL is collaborating with the AoT and will aid in activities related to fostering Quality Teaching at OSU.

OSU Educator Appreciation Week

In May 2021, the CTL will coordinate a week-long celebration of the teaching excellence that lives at Oregon State University! Timed to coincide with national Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4-8), we will collectively express our appreciation for the educational figures who shape our lives! Activities will include highlighting all recipients of Teaching Awards in the 2020-21 academic year at the University, College, and Unit level, together with recognition of New2OSU participants, Learning Innovation grant recipients, and Ecampus teaching projects. Check back for more information.


CTL applauds those who reflect on and articulate what they have learned; how they have learned; questions they’ve asked; research they’ve conducted; and areas they’ve identified as strengths and struggles. We applaud those who create engaging, inclusive, challenging, and supportive learning experiences for their students as well as their colleagues. We applaud you.

Are you interested in becoming a Reflective Teaching Mentor?

The goals of a Reflective Teaching Mentor (RTM) are to support and forward a teacher’s thinking as they formulate their questions and advance their teaching knowledge and skills. We ask that you do classroom visits together as well as collect, analyze, and respond to their student input and data. As a Reflective Mentor we ask for a three-term commitment to partner with your mentee while they are enrolled in New2OSU.

We hope you will consider joining our team!
