Faculty may consult with the CITL about teaching and learning concerns and issues in several ways:
- One-on-one, private, and confidential sessions with a CITL ambassador.
- An ambassador will visit class sessions to gather data to assist faculty in teaching for enhanced student learning.
- Mid-semester Student Feedback: an ambassador will visit a class at the request of a faculty member. During the visit, the ambassador will gather students’ anonymous, voluntary perspectives about how the teaching has facilitated their learning, or what changes in teaching could enhance learning.
Information regarding the online course evaluation process, including schedules and instructions for faculty, may be found on the Online Course Evaluation page.
The CITL ambassadors can help you find information on specific teaching and learning topics.
