Our Mission and Goals

The mission of the TLC is to further develop, support, and promote a culture of excellence in teaching and learning, particularly through technology-enhancements. Keeping this in mind we strive to:

  • Support faculty/instructors in developing a familiarity with current pedagogy (teaching methodologies and best practices) as they apply to both eLearning and traditional courses
  • Assist faculty/instructors to incorporate instructional technology tools or web-enhancements as appropriate into course curriculum
  • Offer one-on-one training and workshops
  • Provide a comfortable computer lab/workspace where faculty/instructors can prepare for classes, develop instructional content, research, develop projects, and experiment with instructional technology tools
  • Help new faculty/instructors transition successfully into the Otis College teaching community
