Teaching and Learning

Teaching is an integral part of the professional life of any faculty. Oakland University faculty are supported in their teaching endeavors by various campus resources and offices including the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL), eLearning, and the office of Community Engagement. Other campus resources assist faculty in accessing course schedules, catalogs, and student support resources that are critical for effective course management and student success. The links below provide access to these important resources.
