John Ottenhoff is the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty at The College of Idaho. Ottenhoff is interested in a range of assessment work, including assessment of learning in the classroom, effects of high-impact practices, and accreditation work.
Ottenhoff was first drawn to becoming a Teagle Scholar because of his interest in emerging technologies, which includes how to improve pedagogical practice through assessment and technology.
Ottenhoff believes that the Teagle Scholar Program engages staff in discussion that can transform colleges and universities. The greatest benefit is the community and the network that scholars have access to help shape institutional practice and faculty work.
