Every year, close to 2,000 OSU teaching faculty work hard to provide our students with an exceptional college experience. Being an effective educator takes work. Course design, assessment and course delivery all involve energy.
Over the last few years, our teaching faculty kept teaching even through a pandemic. We, the staff of the Center for Teaching and Learning, get to see and hear much of the wonderful activities going on in the classroom. OSU also recognizes outstanding efforts. In this post, we take a moment to celebrate all 2022 Teaching Award winners. We thank you all for your service to students and add a special cheer to these award winners.
