Consultations and Observations

Two people talking and reading papers NOTE: Given the COVID-19 response, the classroom observation service will be discontinued until we resume normal campus operations.

Consultation services will continue remotely. To request a consultation about your academic job search, please complete this form linked in the consultation section below. To submit a question or request a consultation about moving to remote teaching, please visit our Keep Teaching site and use this form to submit a request on this topic.


Consultations and observations provide graduate students and postdocs an opportunity for individualized help from the Center for Teaching and Learning. We offer one-on-one consultations about both teaching and the academic job search. Through a classroom observation, a CTL representative will visit your class and customize your feedback to provide you with greater insight into your teaching.

If you are interested in participating in either of these services, please find the appropriate request form within the information provided below. Submit your request at least 2 weeks before your preferred consultation or observation date.
