Meet our new Students as Pedagogical Partners consultants

In Spring 2020, the CTL launched the Students as Pedagogical Partners Initiative. Since then we have partnered with undergraduate students from Columbia College, General Studies, and the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to bring them into conversations about teaching and learning.

Meet our 2022-2023 undergraduate student partners!

The CTL is Here to Help!

Ask a Student!
Are you a Columbia instructor wondering what undergraduate students think about particular engagement, assessment, or inclusion strategies? The use of instructional technologies to support their learning? How students might respond to a project or assignment? Or any other input on a class you are teaching? Ask a student! Columbia instructors are invited to submit teaching and learning questions and CTL Undergraduate Student Consultants will share their thoughts and experiences.

Office Hours 
Join us for office hours via Zoom (or phone) Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm to have your teaching with instructional technology questions answered.

Schedule an in-person or virtual consultation to discuss any teaching and learning need by emailing or email the CTL Learning Designer assigned to your school or department.
