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

Join the Conversation: ChatGPT

In the spring semester 2023, CTLA supported a Faculty Learning Community on the impact of ChatGPT and AI on teaching and learning. In addition, a session during the Spotlight on Learning Conference brought participants together to have a facilitated conversation on the topic.

The CTLA invites instructors to continue the larger community conversation on the impact of ChatGPT and AI on teaching and learning by sharing their perspectives and pedagogical approaches via this survey. The survey comprises these four open-ended questions:

  • How do you see ChatGPT and AI functioning to support teaching and learning?
  • How might ChatGPT and AI interfere with teaching and learning?
  • How do current academic integrity and misconduct policies address ChatGPT and AI use by students given your own course policies and your own assignments/assessments? How might they NOT address your current course policies/assignments/assessments?
  • What are the larger implications for higher education given ChatGPT and AI developments?
