We provide one-on-one consultations for the effective design of courses (any size or modality) and course materials. We also offer ideas for innovative teaching strategies utilizing best practices in the field of teaching and learning.
We provide support for the integration of technology into teaching and learning, including UTC Learn, Kaltura Lecture Capture, ZOOM, and a wide variety of innovative learning technologies.

We offer orientations for new faculty and adjunct faculty.
We provide programs for the review and evaluation of teaching including classroom observations, Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID), peer review of teaching, and and one-on-one support throughout the Quality Matters Review process.
