Are you looking for feedback on teaching materials, course design, or educational grants? General teaching consultations offer faculty support with a CTL consultant who will review your materials and offer personalized, individualized feedback based on your goals. CTL consultants can offer support on a number of teaching-related topics, including:

  • Course and curriculum design (e.g., syllabi review, active learning strategies, assignment design)
  • Inclusive teaching strategies (e.g., establishing positive course climate, accessibility, setting clear course policies and expectations)
  • Professional documents (i.e., teaching statements, diversity statements)
  • Educational grants (e.g., Provost’s Office teaching and learning grants)
  • Assessment and evaluation (e.g., development of rubrics, implementing strategies to assess student learning, assessing curricular innovations)

Please email us at CTLfaculty@columbia.edu to set up a time to meet with one of our consultants!
