Frequently Asked Questions
Who runs the Teaching and Learning Resource Center?
The Teaching and Learning Resource Center Steering Committee is co-chaired by Melinda Rhodes-DiSalvo, associate director of operations and strategic partnerships for the Michael V. Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning, and Sam Craighead, associate director of professional learning for the Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE). The Steering Committee includes representatives from partner units across the university and will meet quarterly to consider major changes and updates to the website. Each partner unit also has the opportunity to appoint a liaison to the Resource Center’s Content Committee, which will draft and review content for the site.
What happened to the ODEE Resource Center?
The Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE) Resource Center was retired when the Teaching and Learning Resource Center launched. The ODEE Resource Center was built in an old content management system (CMS) and had become outdated both technologically and in much of its content. When ODEE made plans to update the CMS supporting the Resource Center, they took the opportunity to re-envision what the website could be and asked units across the university to partner to create a holistic resource for Ohio State educators seeking information on best practices in teaching and how to use the university’s eLearning tools.
Where can I find information I used to access or link to in the ODEE Resource Center?
Most of the popular links from the ODEE Resource Center have been redirected to point to the same information on the Teaching and Learning Resource Center. If the old link doesn’t redirect you to the right place, you can try the Teaching and Learning Resource Center’s search feature. Once you find the new location of what you’re looking for, please remember to update your bookmarks! In addition, toolset information on the new website has been reorganized and updated, so it should be easier than ever to find what you’re looking for.
