Our Services

We offer a variety of personalized assistance and tools to support you with teaching.


Consultations

If you would like to discuss any aspect of your teaching experience, we are available to consult with you – in person, on the phone, via email, or in our online offices. Common questions include:

  • How can I get my students to be more motivated? 
  • What should I do about late students?
  • How can I critique so many students in one class period?
  • How am I supposed to grade?
  • How can I inspire creativity while also teaching skills?

Can’t come to the Faculty Development office? Let us come to you.

Class Visits

Looking for fresh ideas? Another pair of eyes on what’s happening in your classroom? Constructive, confidential feedback? Invite a faculty developer to your class. After the observation we will compare notes to identify what’s working well and brainstorm solutions to any challenges you may be experiencing. Most faculty find our visits to be extremely helpful and some even ask us to come multiple times.


Course Design Assistance

If you’re building a new course or updating an old one, we can help you:

  • Construct a course that guides students to clear, measurable goals
  • Fill out AAU curriculum forms
  • Develop engaging activities & assignments
