Instructional Technology Consulting
Dave Basener, our Instructional Technologist, is available to meet
individually with faculty to address needs related to pedagogy and
technology. Dave also provides consulting to departments, including,
but not limited to: specialized workshops, investigation of software
solutions, and facilitating discussions with Information Services.
Additionally, Dave works closely with the library faculty to provide
technology support to faculty.
New this spring! Each term we will ask a few faculty members to
open up their classrooms to other faculty who wish to observe a
particular teaching technique in action. Those we are lining up for the
first two terms of the program are faculty who have presented in our
Lunchtime Seminar Series on student learning and engagement.
This program is offered to full-time and part-time instructors as part
of the New Faculty Orientation. Faculty members are paired and do
reciprocal non-evaluative observations in one an others classrooms.
We offer a variety of workshops throughout the year. These include the
regular Lunchtime Seminar Series that focuses primarily on student
learning and engagement, and the new Faculty Enhancement Workshop Series
focusing on instructional technology. Additional workshops occur
throughout the year, often in collaboration with other offices.
AoK Assessment Workshops
The CST has provided
workshops to assist faculty with assessment of AoK courses in the
Elmhurst College Integrated Curriculum. Workshops provide guidance for
assessing the learning outcomes for the AoKs and help with using the
reporting tool to report the results to the Assessment Board. Programs
for individual departments are available upon request.
Mentoring and Individual Consulting
The Faculty Development Program at Elmhurst College has a long
history of providing mentors to pre-tenure faculty upon request.
Mentors are generally mid-career or senior faculty from a related
field. The mentor's role is to give feedback and guidance to the mentee
without the added pressure of evaluation. There is no formal time
commitment. If you are interested in being matched with a mentor,
consult with the CST director.
provides individual consulting upon request. This may take many forms,
such as arranging a classroom visit by an experienceed teacher,
providing feedback regarding student ratings, or matching you with a
mentor to help develop a new teaching approach or technique. The
director and FDC members are also available for consultation regarding
the grant application process, including grant parameters/restrictions
and general feedback on applicatications.
