Our work through the CTL aims to cultivate attitudes toward teaching that are open, curious, and innovative. Impactful teaching, we believe, is not innately produced but is learned, informed by continuous dialogue and collective knowledge. As a Center, we invite educators to an open, common space where all are welcome to explore teaching practices, pose questions, have brave conversations, take creative risks, and embrace intellectual humility.
OCoP's goal will be to create a space for dialogue that builds trusted relationships among collaborators by sharing effective strategies and practices, encountering challenges with empathy, and facing change with community. This is not “just another meeting” - this is a network of trusted collaborators invested in doing what we do, better.
Participants will gain an understanding of the unique experiences of international students and their needs, as well as explore how to apply this knowledge to course and assignment design, teaching and mentoring practices, and fostering success inside and outside the classroom.
