The Office of International Affairs and the Drake Institute have created a learning community to promote Collaborative Online International Learning/Virtual Exchange (COIL/VE). The aim is to support instructors in designing new global and intercultural student learning experiences in virtual modalities.
These new programs, which may be course-based or project-based, should connect Ohio State students with their peers at home and around the world through collaborative learning and meaningful intercultural interactions in a virtual space. Faculty and instructors from all colleges and campuses are welcome to apply.
From adapting instruction during a global pandemic to responding to racial injustice and political conflict during a divisive election year, we have seen major changes in how we teach, learn and connect with one another.
The Drake Institute and Innovate are collecting stories from educators and students about how they have transformed in response to these changes, overcome new obstacles, or discovered new ways to connect and succeed.
If accepted, your submission may be shared as part of the virtual Innovate conference on May 5 as well as on the Drake Institute website. We’re looking for unique stories and outlooks, meaningful reflections, and concrete advice for your instructors or peers. Submissions are due Sunday, April 4 .
Strong mentorship has been linked to enhanced mentee productivity, self-efficacy, career satisfaction, and is an important predictor of the academic success of scientists and engineers in training.
Federal funding agencies are calling for evidence-based development of mentoring skills as an important component of successful grant proposals. In this workshop, hosted by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs , faculty will develop and/or enhance their mentoring skills and receive resources and materials to support effective mentoring of graduate students and postdoctoral trainees. The Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER) has developed a curriculum based on proven mentorship development curricula, which is used in the design of this training.

Like teaching itself, conducting peer reviews of colleagues’ classes is an activity that has continued throughout the pandemic but changed dramatically for many of us — both those of us being reviewed and those doing the reviewing. Many of us feel unprepared for (even uneasy about) the experience.
