Higher ed is moving with increased vigor toward blended learning in the wake of the COVID-19 disruption. With this in mind, the Center for Teaching and Learning, Academic Technologies, Ecampus, and the Office of Academic Affairs are partnering in the second year of the Blended Learning Innovations in Pedagogy initiative to address demand for increased support of faculty development, to explore of alternative course modalities, and to apply inclusive evidence-based teaching practices. The initiative is designed to build faculty capacity for blended course design and delivery, to improve student engagement and learning, and to share lessons learned with the broader OSU community. In its first year, the program guided redesign of five large-enrollment courses.
CTL is accepting nominations and self-nominations for the 2022-23 Blended Learning Faculty Fellow. The Fellow will have opportunities to be involved in coordination, design, and facilitation of faculty development around blended learning. The Fellow will support CTL’s strategic goals of enhancing student success and developing a culture of teaching innovation at OSU. See the Call for Nominations.
Nominations will be accepted directly from interested candidates and will also be solicited from academic leadership (deans, directors, and department heads). Nominees must be OSU teaching faculty including non-tenure track, tenure-track, or tenured. The appointment will begin in October and will include three terms: Fall ‘22, Winter ‘23, and Spring ‘23. CTL will provide a $10,000 stipend.
Questions can be directed to Cub Kahn in the Center for Teaching and Learning.
