COACHING & CONSULTATION
Individual coaching and consultation helps academics to identify key teaching challenges, develop potential plans of action, and troubleshoot putting the action plan in place. It also provides confidential safe space and teaching support while academics are navigating sensitive teaching issues. It is uniquely suited for those who are proactive about their interest in and dedication to excellent teaching.

This is a coaching and consultation package for those who are trying to make sense of and develop an action plan for their student evaluations, classroom experiences, teaching materials for the job market or review, feedback about their teaching, etc. The individual and I work together virtually for 30, 60 or 90 days depending on the issue. This time is used to identify the main features of and enact actions to attend to the teaching topic or issue the individual wants to address.
Making Sense of Your...
This service is for academics who are short on time but need to accomplish a big teaching task (e.g. teaching materials for a review; preparation for a new course; ASAP teaching adjustments in response to review, course evaluations, classroom incident; etc.). For individuals who need immediate, in-depth, and sustained work completed in a short time frame, I offer an “intensive”. An intensive is a coaching and consulting service where the faculty member and I work together closely for 2-3 days towards completion of the teaching-related task. The intensive can be arranged to occur either virtually or in-person.
Hourly coaching and consultation can be arranged when an individual has a concise and brief teaching issue for which they need consultation or advice. As with all of the individual coaching and consulting, the hourly service provides teaching support that is a confidential and safe space for those who are navigating sensitive teaching issues or who are just dedicated to excellent teaching.
