KOLT is committed to achieve excellence in teaching at Koç University.

Faculty

Excellent teaching guides students through a process in which knowledge is evaluated, synthesized and produced. Excellent teaching motivates the students to solve problems and learn more about the world, and to help them become self-regulated learners.

KOLT helps the faculty in their journey to achieve excellence in teaching by offering various regular or on-demand services.

These services consist of teaching workshops, course evaluations, help for course design and redesign, integration of advanced technologies into lectures and individual consultation. Each academic year KOLT welcomes international experts from prestigious universities or higher education associations to benefit from their experiences and follow new trends in higher education abroad.
