A Teaching Consultation Service for College Instructors.
Sorcinelli, Mary Deane
A teaching consultation service for college instructors offered at Indiana University--Northwest is described using a hypothetical teaching situation. The service is designed to allow the faculty member a comprehensive and in-depth look at his classroom instruction. It is a voluntary, individualized, and confidential service. The teaching consultant works with the instructor to collect information on classroom performance. Review and discussion of the information provides the instructor with insights into his teaching which may assist him in making improvements. The teaching consultation process includes an assessment of teaching, improvement efforts, and a final review. The process begins with a personal interview followed by classroom observation, videotaping of classes, obtaining student opinions through administration of a questionnaire, and completion of the questionnaire by the instructor himself. After the instructor determines where to attempt improvements in his teaching, the consultant and instructor work collaboratively to design and test ideas or strategies. Near the end of the semester, the instructor and consultant recollect information about his teaching to assess his progress and to determine whether additional improvement efforts are needed. (SW)
