Who are we?

Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching (ÖGEM) was founded under Learning and Student Development Office (L&SDO) in 2009. L&SDO significantly contributed to the student development and improvement in education through support services designed for students and faculty. As an office under the President's Office, L &SDO was restructured as a Center with the necessary applications made to the Higher Education Council of Turkey. In May 5th 2015, the Center was recognized by the Executive Committee. Therefore, ODTÜ ÖGEM has become the first and only learning and teaching center established in a state university in Turkey.
