The CTL consultation services are a great resource for Faculties, Departments, groups or individuals who wish to develop their teaching methods and practices. Consultations are meant to provide anyone with teaching responsibilities an opportunity to explore, improve or discuss any aspects of teaching and tasks related to educating at RIT.
For inquiries outside of our scope of practice we will identify appropriate resources on campus to help you find what you need, quickly. It is sometimes assumed that our consultation services are for instructors experiencing teaching problems. While we are happy to offer assistance in such situations, the CTL collaborates with many highly motivated and effective instructors looking to explore new instructional or assessment methods in their classes. Every person with teaching responsibilities at RIT is welcome in the Centre.
|Type of Consultation||Some Common Options|
- email or phone requests for educational resources
- consultations on identifying course learning outcomes, redesigning a course or designing assessment opportunities (face-to-face or virtual)
- observations of teaching
- review of teaching philosophy statements and teaching dossiers
- Consultations on sound uses of educational technology including Lecture capture and OnQ, the new learning management system (LMS)
|Peer Based||- If you're interested in trying something new or in speaking with someone in or outside your own discipline, we may be able to identify others across campus with similar interests. In addition, our Open Classrooms program affords opportunities to drop in to observe some of the University's teaching award winners in action.|
