Consultations

Faculty, graduate students, postdocs, and staff can request in-person consultations to get support for their teaching and learning needs throughout the year. Faculty can also request consultations with the CTL to assess the impact of curricular innovations in their classrooms or design evaluation strategies for grants that support teaching and learning and/or professional development.

Consultations for Faculty

For faculty seeking professional development, curricular design, assessment and evaluation, and other teaching-related support, email CTLfaculty@columbia.edu. To set up a consultation related to the use of instructional technologies, and hybrid and online education, browse our directory of learning designers organized by discipline. In addition to individual appointments in our Butler Library offices, faculty can receive immediate support during walk-in office hours.

Consultations for Graduate Students

The CTL meets with graduate students seeking consultation at all points in their graduate teaching career. This includes consultations on teaching statements, professional development, preparing for the job market, and general teaching-related support on a first-come, first-served basis. Fill out this form to request a consultation. Your request will be processed within 48 hours. You can expect a follow up email from your assigned consultant to schedule the consultation. Prior to the meeting, please submit your materials for review at least 24 hours in advance, if applicable.

Due to increasing demand for individual consultations, priority will be given to graduate students attending CTL programming related to the area of their inquiry and who are first-time users of our services. We will also limit graduate students to no more than 2 consultations per topic in a given semester.

In addition to individual appointments in our Butler Library offices, graduate student instructors can receive immediate support during walk-in office hours.
