Take Your Teaching to the Next Level

Interested in working on your teaching this year?

A teaching consultation is a focused session, or sessions between a faculty member and a CFDE staff member and/or with another faculty member. A consultation can be a one off meeting but is often undertaken over the course of a semester or a year, and it is geared to help a faculty member improve one or more aspects of his or her teaching.

The aim of the teaching consultation is to help a faculty member to develop a clear set of goals for improving their teaching, and to realize at least one of their goals by the end of the semester. We provide guidance to help you reach those goals. 

We are committed to a flexible but structured consultation model. Thus, we focus on what each individual faculty member might need.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Scholars are award-winning teachers from across the university who assist Associate Director Donna Troka with teaching consultations. 

Participation in this program is entirely voluntary and confidential.
