Join us in the journey of this thing called teaching and learning!
College Peer Supporters (PSs) in the Peer Teaching and Resource (PTRS) Program are here to work with you, OSU instructional faculty! They collaborate with our partners in the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), Academic Technology (AT), and Ecampus to enhance teaching and learning at OSU.
Types of questions we tackle.
- How do I get started or improve my remote or blended course design?
- Where can I go to find evidence-based, effective course design principles?
- How can I use assessment as a pathway to deeper learning?
- How can I create an engaging classroom environment that includes rich student-to-student interaction?
- In what ways can media increase student learning, and where do I go to get started?
- How can I enhance instructor presence in my remote and blended class?
- Want to discuss an idea you have for your course or share something that is working well for you in your teaching with a colleague? We’re here for these conversations too!
A taste of Peer Supporter offerings.
- One-on-one consults and referrals to AT and CTL experts.
- Unit or instructor small group meetings: College PSs and our partners can come to your meetings to present on requested teaching and learning topics and/or facilitate conversations.

If your college P.S. doesn’t have the answer, they will tap into the expertise of our CTL, AT, and Ecampus partners.
