Teaching and Learning Center Programs
Spring 2013 Workshop Calendar
Individual consultations can be arranged at any time by emailing or calling Catherine Ross, Director of the TLC, at firstname.lastname@example.org or x4559. What can you do in a consultation? A consultation can be anything from a five minute chat about a specific question or topic, to a meeting to go over student feedback and strategize a pedagogical plan, to ongoing meetings to design/rework a course, and also includes class observations and debriefing for those who want that type of feedback. Consultations are designed to fit individual needs and interests. The important thing to know about these consultations is that they are always non-evaluative and always confidential. We are here to support and nurture your talents and skills as teachers to help you achieve your teaching goals.
Teaching to Go: departments can design their own workshops!
