Resources for Faculty
OED is here to help.
The Office of Educational Development (OED) specializes in faculty professional development, resources on instructional best practices, and support with educational technologies. If you would like one-on-one help with anything related to teaching and learning, email us and we'll get in touch with you.
Pre-recorded lectures and instructional videos have become popular ways to deliver content to students virtually so that they can learn at their own pace and spend time in class applying skills (like in a flipped classroom approach). OED introduced Pete's Studio as a space for faculty to create high-quality videos, and we are more than happy to help you get started! See this document for more guidance how to prepare for your recording and tips on making your video as effective as possible.

OED is helping faculty to migrate to use of online file storage and collaboration through the use of Office 365 and SharePoint. For more information about the use of SharePoint and the advantages it offers, please refer to our recent professional development session. Most faculty should have access to the needed folders in the CHS Course Documents SharePoint site. Follow the link and use the document libraries to store your course documents securely in the cloud.
OED has developed a new application for use by OSU-CHS COM faculty advisors to track student performance on exams. You must login with your okey credentials to access COM Metrix. User Guide | Video Tutorial
OSU-CHS has transitioned away from using Cicsco WebEx for video conferencing needs. Our new provider is Zoom. Zoom offers many advantages to WebEx, including ease of use. If you need access to Zoom for your work at OSU-CHS, please contact the CHS Helpdesk.
