Center for Teaching & Learning Services for Faculty

The CTL Studio

The CTL Studio is a learning environment designed for creativity, innovation, and collaboration. As part of Otterbein’s Center for Teaching & Learning, it provides a faculty-focused, safe, and knowledge-rich space for pedagogical and design support.  The Studio features state of the art technologies that can support a wide range of learning goals and outcomes, but it's also an open location where informal visits are welcome. Drop by whenever you need a quick break, a hot beverage, or a few minutes of conversation.
