About Faculty Consultations

The Office of Online Education offers individual consultations (in person and online) for faculty teaching fully online, hybrid and in-person classes. These consultations revolve around assistance in course planning, design, and development, topics of effective teaching, establishing instructor presence, motivating and retaining students, continuing to engage the learner, learner-centered course design, selection of and pedagogically sound use of emerging technologies, and best practices in teaching and learning.

  • Each consultation could last anywhere between 30 minutes and 3 hours, including syllabus and course review, meeting time and follow up. Faculty who participate in professional development offered by the Office of Online Education can request further assistance and support as a follow-up to training workshops.
  • To schedule a consultation, we ask you please send us an email to let us know what you want to work on, preferably with your course syllabus or draft of your course development plan, and note specific questions you would like to address during the consultation. The consultations are scheduled from 30-45 minutes and explore a range of topics from course design, adopting appropriate edtech tools to enhance student learning, etc.
