- Quality Teaching
- Core Areas
As a land grant institution, a commitment to teaching and the goal of transformative education accessible to ALL learners, is part of Oregon State University's mission. The Advancement of Teaching (AOT), a Faculty senate committee, was asked to answer the question of what quality teaching looks like at OSU.
This mission initiated the Quality Teaching Framework (QT Framework) which was a 3-4 year effort. In addition to the AOT, the mission included high-touch support from the Center for Teaching and Learning; over 80 teaching faculty, administrators, GTAs, and students; units across campus; and consultations from outside universities further ahead in doing similar work.
The QT Framework and SLE instruments were endorsed by the faculty senate in 2021. CTL supports these adoptions as they highlight quality teaching at OSU and are aligned to the work we do.
