Teaching Consultations

One-on-One Feedback on the Craft of Teaching

Faculty are typically alone with their work as teachers, working with students without other teaching professionals around them.  It’s hard to see your own work while you’re busy performing it.  Through a teaching consultation that is conducted entirely outside of any evaluation process, faculty can gain from the perspective of the Executive Director or Associate Director, both of whom are experienced in teaching, pedagogy, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Mostly what OFA professionals can provide is observation and feedback — a second set of eyes, and emphatic listening.  We are not experts in your discipline, but we know teaching and learning, and are very likely to be able to provide practical advice.
