The Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center offers confidential teaching consultations for faculty members and teaching assistants. Consultations may range from a review of a course syllabus, to classroom observation, to videotaping of instruction. The consultant will provide detailed feedback to the faculty member or teaching assistant and may provide follow-up consulting upon request. Each TLPDC staff member who provides consultations can offer general assistance as well as insight from their areas of expertise. Consultations can be scheduled by contacting the individual directly or by calling the TLPDC office at 742-0133.
Please take a look at the descriptions below to see who may best support you. Our staff can support a variety of needs. Once you have chosen the person you'd like to work with, simply click their name to schedule a meeting. You can also contact the TLPDC by email.
