Office for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment

It is a goal of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Academic Programs to provide a quality educational experience in and out of the classroom.

The Office for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (OTLA) supports this goal by assisting instructors in developing meaningful assessment plans, offering professional development opportunities, and creating active learning environments. We promote excellence in education and innovative teaching communities. Through support services such as overseeing the schedule of course offerings, and processing space reservations, OTLA is an essential resource for maintaining the quality educational experience the College strives to offer our students.
