The Office for Teaching & Learning (OTL) invites you to join us at our Open House on October 28 as we celebrate new spaces, fresh faces, and updated places – all done to evolve our support of outstanding teaching and learning here at Wayne State. 

New Spaces.

We will be formally introducing our One Button Studios (OBS) during the Open House. These studios offer pro-quality cameras, sound, and lighting (not to mention green screens, a lightboard, and an interview set), yet they are as simple to operate as pressing a button. If you are interested in creating innovative videos for your courses – or you just want to play with the green screen or lightboard – take a tour at the Open House! 

Fresh Faces.

The OTL has welcomed three new staff members this year – Michelle Serreyn, Program Coordinator; Carly Lesoski, e-Learning Specialist; and Alisa Hutchinson, e-Learning Strategist. Stop by the Open House to meet them and catch up with the rest of our team. We are always interested in talking with WSU instructors and learning about your teaching experiments, challenges, and victories! 

Updated Places.

Our classroom, lounge, and faculty lab have all undergone visual, furnishing, and technology upgrades – allowing us to elevate our workshops and provide inspiring yet peaceful places for instructors to learn, work, and reflect. The Open House is a great time to take a look if you haven’t seen them yet. Not to mention our website and virtual resources have also had a facelift! 

But wait, there’s more…
