Student-Centered Approaches to Teaching and Technology

 A common technology toolkit for students will enable instructors to enhance learning through active assessments and project-based learning.  All who teach at the university will not only have opportunities for professional development in digital pedagogy, but also for community building with other instructors interested in educational strategies that leverage digital tools. 

Educator Program Pillars

Course Design

The opportunity for innovative projects and streamlined classroom solutions are available with the introduction of a common technology. As instructors work through these possibilities, we provide resources and support for integration of iPad technology. Visit the Teaching & Learning Resource Center for guides to technology toolsets and incorporating them in your curriculum. 

Community Events

We will offer community events to support the sharing of ideas, challenges and instructional models. We will work to foster a transparent conversation that supports the creative educators and innovators at Ohio State as well as the many organizations that support them. 

Awards & Recognition 

Instructors may receive certification and recognition for their professional learning activities through the University Institute for Teaching and Learning's endorsement program.

Centralized Course Core: Students First & the Teaching Expectation

Digital Flagship prioritizes consistent student learning experiences throughout courses and strategic development of workforce readiness in our students. Our evaluation of student experiences, as well as the LMS data use, has revealed three simple items that must be present in Carmen to set students down the path to success:

  1. All assignments and required activities have active due dates
  2. All student grades are posted to the grade book
  3. The course syllabus is posted in a clear, user-friendly location.

These three items will serve as the baseline for Digital Flagship Educators activity participation.
