Confidential Teaching Consultations

Confidential Teaching Consultations provide an opportunity for faculty to learn more about the strengths of their current teaching practices, as well as areas for growth, through a systematic process undertaken with a colleague experienced with peer consultation.

Faculty may engage in a teaching consultation to answer their own questions regarding their teaching, or in response to feedback from students, or from their department chairs or colleagues.

Teaching consultations begin with a meeting to determine what the faculty member hopes to achieve, the specific tools and procedures to be utilized during the consultation, and the form in which the results will be summarized for use by the faculty member. Note that all information regarding a consultation is confidential. Participating faculty may choose to share the results of their consultation with others.
