Our Events on Teaching are offered each semester and cover a wide variety of teaching-related topics. Anyone with an interest in the topic is welcome to attend, but we do have Ohio State faculty, instructors, and GTA’s in mind when we design our workshops. Please use our online registration form to sign up for any events in which you are interested, as space is limited.

All UCAT events, unless specified otherwise within an individual event description, will be held at Ohio State University’s Younkin Success Center. For more information about transportation and parking please see Transportation and Parking options for attending events at the Younkin Success Center.
