Requesting Customized Teaching Support for Your Department or School
In addition to supporting individual instructors, Teaching Support can tailor many of its services and resources to the specific needs and interests of your department or school upon request. Below, you will find a list of our services, the notice we would need to prepare that service, the minimum number of instructors participants required, and how to submit a request.
Please note that schools and departments are responsible for securing and registering participants for these services.
Customized Teaching Support services include:
|Service||Description||Notice Required/ Minimum Number of Participants||How to Submit a Request|
|Workshops||We can customize the content and duration of any of our existing one-time workshops.||Two weeks/ At least 10 participants||Browse our list of workshops that can be customized. Or you can submit a Unit Workshop Request Form.|
|Seminars||Seminars are sustained, cohort-based faculty development experiences that take place over the course of a semester or a year. Seminars can be customized for groups of instructors who want to take a deep dive into a project or topic of interest.
Because seminars are time and effort-intensive, requests will be accommodated as capacity allows. Faculty who commit to participating should be prepared to spend 4 hours/month on seminar meetings and work.
