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.

At Koç University we define professional development as a commitment to the continuous pursuit of excellence in teaching and research. 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, teaching innovation grants, 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.
