Teaching Support Program exceeds goals
Congratulations to the 3,500+ faculty members who have participated in the Teaching Support Program (TSP) in the past two years. Through their work and the leadership of the University Institute for Teaching and Learning (UITL), Ohio State has created one of the most comprehensive teaching excellence programs in higher education. The participation rate also shattered TSP goals. For example, 69% of full-time faculty in undergraduate-serving colleges have completed the first two components of the program, far exceeding the 50% goal. UITL remains ready to support faculty through the instructional redesign process and with other topics related to teaching and learning.
