The Center for Teaching & Faculty Development (CTFD) offers a customized process to enable individual instructors and departments, schools, and colleges to study their own teaching as a means to improve student learning.
Recognizing that the route to excellent teaching is often very individualized, the CTFD offers instructors a confidential consultation process as part of which a CTFD consultant and the instructor determines teaching goals, identifies what is going well in the classroom and what might merit attention, and develops strategies for making needed changes.
Instructors may choose from a highly-targeted, short-term consultation that addresses specific teaching goals, or a more comprehensive overall assessment. In addition, CTFD consultants offer teaching assessment options such as:
- Syllabus Consultations
- Classroom visits;
- The Midterm Assessment Process;
- Student interviews;
- Course materials reviews; and
- Instructor self-assessments.
All options are supplemented by the CTFDâ€™s extensive library of monographs, articles, and videos on pedagogy. To schedule a syllabus consultation, please email .
In addition to offering individual consultations for instructors, the CTFD works with departments, schools, and colleges to develop group consultation sessions tailored to the unique needs of the various teaching communities on campus. Sessions often address issues of classroom teaching, TA training and supervision, course and curriculum design, student differences, and other teaching and learning topics.
