Instructional design consultants are available to perform classroom observations for faculty who wish to analyze their classroom teaching behaviors or their presentation skills. Our consultants can also comment on aspects of teaching such as encouraging classroom discussion and group work. In addition, consultants will provide feedback to faculty about their online courses.
Instructors who have requested an observation meet with a consultant prior to the classroom visit or online course review to clarify the goals of the observation and review course materials. Following the observation, the faculty member and consultant create teaching improvement goals for which strategies are selected, designed, and implemented to meet.
