Welcome Beavs!

CTL embraces all new teaching colleagues to OSU as valued community members.

Through a variety of hosted events and learning opportunities CTL works to advance their teaching development and extended orientation.

New2OSU Welcome Event

Held at the beginning of fall, the event offers new teachers an opportunity to meet each other as well as members of the OSU community to learn about a broad range of resources to support their teaching, scholarship, and research. Contact CTL to find out when this event is being held this year!

New2OSU: Teaching Academy

Are you new to teaching?

Are you an experienced teacher but new to OSU?

Would you like to address just-in-time teaching concerns to advance your teaching development and extend your orientation to OSU?


In order to advance teaching excellence, new teachers participate in a comprehensive certificated course. This hybrid course supports the advancement of the basic skills surrounding curriculum planning, facilitation of instruction, and assessing learning. Participants will also learn about OSU’s policies and practices on promotion, retention, and tenure; our teaching and learning culture; and available resources for teaching and scholarship.



At the end of the course participants will have developed the knowledge and skills necessary to build supportive, interactive, and instructionally sound learning environments.



Through readings, videos, workshops, mentoring, teaching observations, discussion, reflection, and challenging learning tasks, participants will learn about and demonstrate effective teaching practices. Contextualizing students’ ratings of instruction with professional teaching portfolios will also be demonstrated. 


This service is held during Fall term. Contact CTL to find out when it will be offered next or to initiate a session!
