Henry Griff is a teacher who is now teaching other teachers at OSU. Griffy is the liaison in the DELTA program, in the OSU Office of Distance Education and e-Learning. Distance Education Learning and Teaching Academy (DELTA) is a program intended to teach and support OSU faculty to be more effective online instructors.
DELTA is just one way in which OSU is working to keep their faculty and students at the forefront of how we teach and learn. The new DELTA plan asks for the university to be the benchmark of teaching practices and student success.
Marcia Ham, DELTA founder, and Griffy are running a monthly workshop in which instructors can bring in their course materials, lesson plans and questions about how to adapt them to an online classroom experience. Instructors like Connie Lutz, who needed to adapt new materials to an online format, have been given the opportunity to improve themselves through the DELTA program, and consequently their students.
