A-Z Resources

Need information to support learning? We are working on building our available online resources. If you have a question about anything that is not yet available through our website please contact us.

There are many ways for us to work together!

This is a time of preparation. We can work with you an any aspect of your course design from revising one assignment to building an entire new course. You can do this in community or through individual consultation. We can also connect you with partners and other resources to help you reach your teaching goals.

This is the time you are working with students to set the environment and build community. We can help you develop communication strategies that will help students feel included as well as help you and students to positively manage work-load for productive intellectual engagement.

This is a time to take stock. Are you finding balance? Do you need a consultation about managing grading or classroom management? This is also a great time for mid-term assessment and to have a low-stakes observation from a CTL expert to get feedback, on your teaching can improve the learning experience before the end of the semester.

This part of the semester is a time for reflection. What worked? What didn’t? How do you know? We can help you interpret course feedback and identify relevant information to improve your courses. We can also help you share your successes and lessons learned at Amherst College or at conferences or through publication.

Implementing Active Learning

Discover and explore new ways to engage your students is one way to stimulate neuroplasticity—both your own and your students’. Introducing a variety of class activities helps maintain a good “learning zone” stress level in the classroom.
