Consulting & Support

Whether you'd like to enhance your teaching, writing or research skills, the Center for Faculty Development offers support to all faculty including individual consultations for teaching and scholarly writing, peer mentoring opportunities, workshops, and online resources.

Consulting services for blended and online learning, academic and research technology are also available through the STELAR Center


Teaching Consultation

Classroom consulting is an important way that the Center for Faculty Development supports teaching. Consulting services are free, confidential, and intended to assist faculty who want to strengthen and improve their teaching skills.


Instructional Design

Instructional design support is available to all St. Thomas faculty as part of our partnership with Information Technology Services and the Libraries to enhance academic technology support and services for faculty.


Open Classrooms

Faculty tell us that they benefit immensely when colleagues share their experiences, mistakes, and best practices with teaching. By opening the face-to-face and online classroom faculty can connect with colleagues and promote conversations about teaching - with or without technology.


Writing Consultation & Workshops

The Faculty Development Center provides support to all St. Thomas faculty—full time and adjunct—on aspects of writing and publishing scholarly work including individual consulting and group writing retreats and workshops.
