We offer confidential individual consultations to faculty members, instructors, and teaching assistants who wish to discuss specific teaching concerns and effectiveness as they relate to a particular class or classes. As part of the consultation process, you may request personal classroom observations or a video recording. We can also provide and discuss additional resources on teaching methods. Consultations are confidential, non-evaluative, and free of charge.

would like to discuss other aspects of instruction and course management. For example, we can assist you with planning a course, creating a syllabus, working with problem students, planning a single activity, or assessing student learning.
want to discuss issues relating to a class you are teaching and feel that you would be unable to do so with departmental colleagues who might be involved with hiring, promotion or tenure-related activities.
