Workshop/Consultation Request


** Please note: Currently, All Teaching Innovations Office consultation support is virtual (via Zoom)**

Let the UTLC help you with our expertise in pedagogy and research from the scholarship of teaching and learning.

The UTLC provides one-on-one and small group consultations, as well as workshops, to all instructors and departments.

Consultations may also include classroom observations using a standardized observation protocol. Please watch the following video to learn about the Generalized Observation and Reflection Platform (GORP) tool that the UTLC uses for observations.

All consultations are confidential. We will not share any information about our sessions, from your consultation request to any feedback, with anyone outside of our office as a rule. Our consultations exist to help you with your own reflections on your teaching practices, and not as evaluations. This means that the TIO and UTLC cannot provide course observations for annual reviews or promotion processes.

We have both individual and group consultation rooms in our space on the first floor of 1100 W Market St. We offer virtual and in-person consultation appointments. We can host workshops in the Faculty Center or in your departmental spaces. 

After you request a consultation, we will work with you to schedule a time that works for you with a coach whose expertise matches your needs. The UTLC staff, across our three offices, serve as coaches for our consultations. You can learn more about us, our interests and expertise here.
