The Office for Teaching and Learning (OTL) hosts speakers who are invited to campus each semester. These events help to bring new and insightful ways of thinking about teaching and learning at Wayne State. The presenters are national scholars whose areas of expertise have a broad influence on higher education and student success. The OTL coordinates a campus-wide keynote address open to all of our faculty members.
Our 2019 Innovations Luncheon keynote speaker, Thomas J. Tobin, is the Conference Programming Chair and Faculty Associate in the Learning Design, Development, & Innovation department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as an internationally recognized speaker and author on quality in technology-enhanced education, especially copyright, evaluation of teaching practice, academic integrity, and accessibility/universal design for learning.
