The CTE offers both individual and group consultations.

Individual Consultations:

Individual consultations are a great opportunity for faculty members to work with CTE staff on a range of instructional needs and issues. We have a wealth of experience assisting faculty with the exploration of new teaching methods, refining classroom management, aligning instructional objectives with assessments, crafting course syllabi, considering innovative uses of instructional technology, and course design - including the transitioning courses to the online environment.  We look forward to the opportunity of working closely with faculty to arrive at creative solutions to the challenges we all face in the classroom. Consultations are strictly confidential and non-evaluative.

In addition, we can provide a wide range of methods for providing you with formative feedback on your teaching and your students’ learning. Some of these include:

  • Classroom observations
  • Peer coaching
  • Midterm assessments
  • Focus groups

Consultations are also a great way to receive follow-up from the CTE after a workshop or to receive assistance from the CTE when your schedule doesn’t permit workshop attendance on a topic of interest.  The CTE staff can give you the individualized, ongoing support needed to help you realize your teaching and learning goals.

Group Consultations:

Groups of faculty, departments, or schools can work with the CTE to request workshops, mini institutes, assessment plans or help with program development. These faculty development opportunities can be tailored to your meet specific needs and presented during a time and place that is most convenient for your faculty. Please contact the CTE to set up an appointment.
