Teaching Consultation

The Academy for Teaching Excellence offers one-on-one teaching consultations to all faculty members.  Teaching consultations are personalized to meet the needs of the faculty member, and are designed to assist the faculty member in addressing any classroom challenge or opportunity.  For example, an Academy for Teaching Excellence representative can help you:

  • Design or redesign a course or syllabus
  • Develop or rework a lesson to increase student engagement and understanding
  • Identify teaching strategies that best achieve your goals for the classroom
  • Generate creative ideas for assignments, projects, and classroom activities
  • Design assessments and rubrics for effective feedback to students

Teaching consultations are voluntary and confidential.  The process is documented to help guide the consultation, but this documentation is for you to use as you see fit.

Please propose 3 dates/times to meet with an Academy representative this semester.
