The Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) is driven by the mission of advancing transformative, inclusive, and impactful teaching and learning across all disciplines to actualize DU’s educational promise to our students.
Originally called the Center for Teaching and Learning, OTL began at DU in 1999 and celebrates its 25th anniversary in April 2024. We are embracing this anniversary as an exciting opportunity to celebrate the great work of DU faculty, staff, and other DU community members over the past 25 years to promote excellence in teaching and learning at DU.
We look forward to celebrating with you and not only remembering the history of the OTL but illuminating the ways in which the university classroom has changed in the last quarter century. We’d also like to celebrate our founding director, Dr. Julanna Gilbert, who will join us for the celebration.
We are looking for artifacts and stories from colleagues across campus about the transformation of teaching and learning over the past 25 years.
Please fill out our OTL Artifact survey to share your memories! If you are not sure what to share, email email@example.com or drop by the OTL suite in AAC 350. We are looking forward to celebrating with you throughout this year!
