Individual counselling and feedback for lecturers

Do you feel like trying something new in your lectures or classroom? Or do you have a good idea that you would like to try, but you feel you need to talk about it and develop further in collaboration with someone else?

You might also want some help on the use of Blackboard and other digital tools? CTL offers individual counselling on this.

Individual counselling

As a lecturer or instructor you may feel inclined to try new things – a new course design, new forms of instruction, new working methods for the students, new media, new technologies and so on. But you may be unsure on how to approach and apply new teaching measures.

CTL can help you put your ideas into practice. We can even help you expand on ideas that may not be fully developed yet.

Form

The counselling is agreed between the teacher(s) and one or more consultants from CTL through a series of meetings, where we help you assess and refine the ideas presented.

When you get to the point where you are ready to test your ideas in practice, you can get further supervision and feedback from one of CTL’s consultants.

Target group

All teaching staff at departments and centres at Aarhus BSS.

Individual feedback

All teachers, experienced and inexperienced alike, may come to a point where they need feedback on their teaching. Maybe you are looking for general tips and advice on how to approach your teaching? Maybe you have just introduced a new pedagogical initiative, which you need someone with fresh eyes to assess? Or maybe you need help to solve a specific problem in your teaching?

CTL offers supervision on practical teaching activities based on the teacher’s own needs and wishes, and we provide feedback to help the teacher solve whatever challenge he or she is facing.

Form

An employee from CTL will attend a number of lessons and provide written feedback in accordance with a predetermined model (click here to see an example). CTL offers so-called formative feedback, which means a form of feedback that serves to help the teacher develop his or her competences. It is not an assessment or evaluation in the traditional sense, but rather a means to self-help.

The supervision can take the form of just one session or a series of sessions, e.g. over the course of a few weeks in order to test and assess new initiatives – all by agreement with CTL. CTL provides thorough written and verbal feedback.

Target group

All teaching staff at departments and centres at Aarhus BSS.

Individual counselling on Blackboard and other digital tools

CTL offers individual counselling for lecturers who wish to develop courses supported wholly or partly by Blackboard. CUL can help lecturers choose the tools in Blackboard that fit the specific teaching situation, and we can help set up the Blackboard course page so that the page is ready for the lecturer to begin teaching.

Form

Agreed individually.
