The Center for Teaching and Learning offers several opportunities for faculty seeking individualized help, feedback, or simply a neutral sounding board!
All services and consultations adhere to a strict confidentiality policy.

To request one of the following services, please contact Dr. Allison Boye at aboye@collin.edu


Individual consultations

Individual consultations can be incredibly beneficial for faculty and staff. Consultations can focus on any teaching-related or professional development question, and typically last for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Common topics of discussion might include syllabus and/or course design, assignment design, end-of-term student evaluations, student engagement, classroom rapport, or other specific teaching strategies. 

Classroom observations

Faculty members looking for highly-individualized and specific constructive feedback on their teaching might consider requesting a classroom observation! These observations typically include 3 touchpoints: an initial discussion, the observation itself, and a follow-up consultation.  Requests for observations should be made at least 2 weeks in advance and must be made by the individual instructor.

Early student feedback

Gathering feedback from students during the semester, rather than waiting until the end, can be a valuable strategy for improving teaching and building rapport with students by giving them a voice in shaping their learning environment while it is still meaningful for them. This research-based process involves the collection of detailed feedback from students during a class meeting by the consultant, consensus-driven sorting of the feedback, and a follow-up consultation. Requests for feedback collection should be made at least 2 weeks in advance and must be made by the individual instructor.
