New2OSU

Structured on existing literature New2OSU is focused on impacting student success by accelerating the effectiveness of newer teachers. In collaborative cohorts, participants develop the knowledge and skills necessary to build inclusive, interactive, and instructionally sound learning environments to promote student engagement, retainment, and deeper levels of learning. New2OSU partners with units across campus for participants to learn about OSU’s policies and practices; our teaching and learning culture; and available resources.

The Center for Teaching and Learning offers teachers the opportunity to earn a Certificate in University Teaching. New2OSU is focused on impacting student success by accelerating the effectiveness of newer teachers. Completion of the program may be used as evidence of professional development and teaching effectiveness for performance review (subject to supervisor approval). This comprehensive certificated program is intended for newer faculty or for those seeking teaching renewal.

New2OSU partners with units across campus and uses a HyFlex approach to support the advancement of teaching and use of educational technology. In collaborative cohorts, participants also learn about OSU's policies and practices; our teaching and learning culture; and available resources for teaching and scholarship.

At the end of the program participants will have developed the knowledge and skills necessary to build supportive, inclusive, interactive, and instructionally sound learning environments. Through readings, videos, workshops, mentoring, teaching observations, discussions, reflection, and challenging learning tasks, participants learn about and demonstrate effective teaching practices.

Teachers wishing to pursue certification are asked to commit to a three-term intensive program requiring (on average) 3 hours per week and (on average) 30 hours per term.

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!
