Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (CTLA) advances teaching and learning excellence at OHIO by providing University-wide resources and championing scholarly teaching that is student-centered, evidence-based, innovative and inclusive.

Newly expanded and relaunched in the fall 2022 semester, the CTLA serves instructors, departments, programs and colleges across the University. The CTLA's programming brings OHIO community members together to share ideas and expertise, implement evidence-based instructional strategies in various learning contexts and assess the effectiveness of teaching practices.

The CTLA's initiatives align with many presidential priorities, as well as the University's vision statement, by transforming the student learning experience to best support intellectual growth and skill acquisition and promote learner development as individuals and engaged citizens.

Current CTLA Topics

AI and Teaching and Learning

In the spring semester 2023, CTLA supported a Faculty Learning Community on the impact of ChatGPT and AI on teaching and learning, and the work to explore the implications of AI on teaching and learning continues this fall and spring 2024 with two additional FLCs.
