Consultations and Mentoring

Excellent teaching is multifaceted and highly individualized. Colleagues come to us with many concerns, plans and questions. At CET we help by listening, by asking questions, and by offering research-based solutions. All Faculty Fellows welcome the opportunity to offer off-the-record and constructive advice to assist USC faculty, teaching assistants, departments and schools. Simply email a Fellow or the CET Director to begin the process!

Teaching Tips:

THE MORE OPPORTUNITIES STUDENTS HAVE TO RESTATE OR APPLY KEY CONCEPTS THE BETTER THEY WILL REMEMBER THOSE CONCEPTS

In a phrase: Don’t tell students when you can show students – don’t show them when they can show themselves or others. Ask students to summarize, paraphrase, or generalize about important concepts through discussions, roleplaying, simulations, case studies, and written assignments.

Gross & Davis p.264
