Hands on Deck
COACHING & CONSULTATION

Coaching and consultation help academics and institutions to identify key retention and 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 excellent teaching and supporting BIPOC and diverse faculty.

 

Effective and Efficient Faculty’s Individual Virtual Coaching benefits (*not available at most teaching centers):

 

  • 1-on-1 focus & attention of the teaching coach*

  • Immediate & direct access to college teaching and student expertise*

  • Sustained support and coaching from a teaching expert*

Group Coaching
Bullet Journal

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 a virtual “intensive”. An intensive is a coaching and consulting service where the faculty member and I work together closely virtually for 2-3 days towards completion of the teaching-related task. 

Virtual Teaching Intensive (e.g. Virtual Teaching Retreat)
Taking Note

Hourly virtual 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.
