OSU Faculty Prepare To Teach in World-class LINC Facility

OSU’s Learning Innovation Center, also known as the LINC, will be open for business beginning fall term of 2015! Teaching in a round space may have its challenges, and veteran instructors who will be teaching in this world-class facility have been preparing to make the transition from teaching in traditional rowed-seating classrooms to state-of-the-art circular classroom environments by participating in LINC Orientations. These orientations, held for instructors since January, have been a collaborative effort between OSU’s Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL), Academic Technology (AT), the Registrar’s office, and Boora Architects. A world-class facility ought to have world-class teaching faculty… and that is surely what we have at OSU!
