The CTL Studio - Course Enhancement & Learning Media for Faculty

February 2014 CTL Open House
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 to support pedagogy, instruction, and design. 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.

About the CTL Studio

Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. or by appointment

The CTL Studio was redesigned using an open café concept with dedicated WiFi access to facilitate individual consultations as well as group sessions. It has flexible seating, whiteboards, reading materials, and other analog or digital tools, including a 55-inch flat screen TV connected to an Apple TV and to our multimedia workstations (Windows and Mac).

Studio Services and Events

Faculty and departments can book time at the studio to work on their projects independently or in consultation with CTL staff. We invite you to come by the studio or contact ctl@otterbein.edu to explore the many course enhancement and educational development possibilities that our space can support:

  • Blended Learning and Course Enhancement: Learn how to integrate Blackboard Collaborate, Blackboard Learn, and ePortfolio in your courses or how to use applications like Impatica, Respondus, or Turning Point to enhance your in-class activities.
  • Learning Media Development: Take advantage of our professional audio, video, and content authoring tools to work on your media-related projects.  Available programs include Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Express, and Camtasia Studio as well as graphic design or Web development software like Dreamweaver, InDesign, and Photoshop, among many others.
  •  Special Events and Communities: The CTL Studio often hosts one-time sessions and ongoing discussions about teaching and learning, like our "Do's and Donuts" series or our reading groups and professional learning communities.  See our calendar of events for more information.

We have also created LibGuides and Google Docs to collect information related to many of the activities we support and the topics of our events, visit our Resources page to review them.
