Teaching Consultations

Interested in working on your teaching this year?

A teaching consultation is a focused session, or sessions between a faculty member and a CTL staff member and/or with another faculty member. A consultation can be a one off meeting, but it 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 Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Scholars are innovative, often award-winning, teachers from across the university who assist CTL Executive Director, Dr. Donna Souder, with teaching consultations. 

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. And, we believe that, with help and colleagues committed to your success, you’ll be able to guide the next group of faculty members seeking support!

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