We have worked to create opportunities for faculty to engage in learning communities through the Ohio State Teaching Enhancement Program (OSTEP). These groups meet regularly for a year, working together to support each others’ efforts on a teaching related project. Over the past several years, we have supported a variety of learning communities on different topics or for different cohorts.
Graduate Teaching Development Grants
Grants of up to $10,000 each are available to develop or enhance GTA programs within departments, schools, colleges, or consortia of units. Proposals are collected and evaluated three times per academic year. More information can be found here.
Lecturer Development Grants
The goal of our Lecturer Development Grants is (in combination with the Lecturer Learning Community) to provide lecturers with opportunities that enable them to become more effective teachers.
