Learning Communities

Meeting and getting to know different folks form across the campus has opened my eyes to the experience and knowledge of our faculty here at OCU.  - Dia Campbell-Detrixhe, Nursing

Each year the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning sponsors several Learning Communities. These communities encourage faculty and staff from across the campus to come together and learn from each other. Each community typically focuses on a topic or book that addresses teaching and learning in higher education today. Most communities meet at least once a month and welcome all OCU faculty and staff. 

If you are interested in joining a learning community here on campus, please read the descriptions below to learn about this year's active communities.
