Confidential Consultation about Teaching: Information
Since 1990 Teaching Resource Center staff members have consulted with teaching assistants from across the University about their teaching, knowing that self-reflection coupled with objective feedback enhances the overall teaching/learning endeavor. The TRC offers a variety of confidential consultations about teaching. A few of these are listed below.
Three main types of consultations are available to you, a Teaching Analysis Poll (TAP), an in-class observation, and an analysis of a videotaped class:
Note: For more information on the different consultation types, click here.
Once you have decided on the consultation type, schedule it online. A TRC staff member will contact you to discuss the details of the consultation option you choose and to set up a meeting time. During the consultation, you are in the driver’s seat; the TRC staff member plays the role of an objective observer and a resource for information about effective teaching paradigms.
Note: All of the TRC’s services, including consultations are voluntary and strictly confidential. The number of consultations we conduct is limited and filled on a first-come first-served basis. TAPs are only conducted between the fourth and ninth weeks of the semester.
