TCC Offers Faculty Consultant Training Sessions

TCC: Are you interested in becoming a faculty consultant?

The Teaching and Creativity Center works to foster an environment for faculty to exchange ideas and resources, to assist with course and lesson development, and to help faculty members enhance and develop their skills. One initiative, Consultations, offers assistance with a teaching dilemma or in the curriculum planning process that is absolutely confidential.

Teaching and Creativity Center consultations are:

  • voluntary and confidential
  • about teaching
  • available to faculty and professional staff who teach

Faculty can work with consultants to receive:

  • support in designing a course or planning a lesson
  • Small Group Instructional Feedback (a structured discussion between the consultant and your students to provide you with feedback about your course)
  • feedback on developing an assessment
  • non-evaluative classroom observation
  • videotape analysis

Consultants are:

  • faculty members who are trained as academic coaches
  • motivated to support other faculty members in their growth

If you are motivated to participate in consultancy training so that you can work with faculty on course plans and discreet challenges in class contact Gena Merliss at or Karen Coffey at
