The Center for Integrated Professional Development provides a growing list of options for faculty who wish to enrich their teaching through instructional consultations. Get a new perspective on your teaching by taking advantage of one or more of the following services.
Midterm Chats, also referred to as "Small Group Instructional Diagnoses," allow you to see your course through the eyes of your students—at midterm, while there’s still time to make adjustments and improve student learning.
Program Chats are consensus-building processes that enable departments and schools to gain insights into students' perceptions about their learning in an entire program. All program chats must be requested by a department chair or school director.
Members of the LMS support team can assist you with both technical and pedagogical questions about using ReggieNet and Canvas. For more information or to schedule a consultation, please contact the main Center number at (309) 438-2542 or email ProDev@ilstu.edu.
