Wayne State University’s Office for Teaching & Learning (OTL) hosted five university leaders and faculty members from teaching and learning centers across the People’s Republic of China and two colleagues from the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor on Thursday, September 8, 2016. As a part of the site visit, OTL staff members shared key strategies for organization and operation of a teaching development center, program design and assessment, consultation services, and support of campus wide initiatives related to excellence in teaching and learning. Fellows also heard fall 2016 offerings such as the Mid-Semester Assessment Program (MAP) and Warrior Teaching Days. “We are always delighted to collaborate with colleagues regionally and internationally.” said Mathew Ouellett, Associate Provost and Director of the Office for Teaching & Learning. “Exchanges like this allow us to showcase WSU’s commitment to excellence in teaching, continue to build our national and international networks, and discuss and learn from what is working in other centers.” This marked the second year that the OTL has hosted a site visit by the UM CRLT China Fellows Program.
