Learning communities

The OTL hosts various learning communities in an effort to cultivate a sense of engagement and collaboration related to teaching and learning.  These communities consist of a small group of faculty (8-12 members), who meet regularly throughout the year to explore teaching and learning issues in a collaborative and meaningful way. To learn more about joining a learning community, contact the OTL at (313) 577-0001 or OTL@wayne.edu.
