Center for Teaching Excellence

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) exists to assist educators in their efforts to meld the science of learning with the art of teaching. We strive to support faculty by providing needed resources and tools which will enhance the educational process. Our aim is to partner with instructors as we consider the learning experience and how to most effectively engage students. Central to this task is offering pedagocial support, technological innovation, and collaborative opportunities.

How We Can Help

The CTE offers numerous resources to faculty in an effort to strengthen the educational experience. Whether it is building a course from scratch or adding in a new delivery modality to better connect with students, the CTE is available to equip instructors with the tools needed to pursue our goal of creating "Future Shapers" here at OBU.

Some of the key elements of support we provide are:

  • One-on-one consultations 
  • Instructional workshops
  • Pedagogical training opportunities
  • Collaborative learning experiences
  • Course development resources
  • Syllabus support
