The CTL offers individualized, confidential consultations free of charge to all educators on the CU Boulder campus. CTL staff members can consult on specific aspects of your teaching or simply hold a general conversation. We are likewise happy to provide confidential classroom observations and conduct classroom interviews. When needed, our staff can quickly connect you to appropriate campus support and resources.
We, at the Center for Teaching and Learning, are available for teaching consultations! Do you want feedback on a course you are developing? Do you have questions about an assignment you are designing or a syllabus you are planning for the spring semester? Have you thought about making your classes...
