CET’s instructional designers offer complimentary individual, group, and department consultations for any USC faculty, teaching any type of course, on both the UPC and HSC campuses as well as off-campus or online. Every consult is different because it’s personalized. Course consults usually last an hour and can cover course learning objectives, assignments/assessments, active learning, and leveraging technology. Consults may also take the form of teaching observations, presentations at faculty retreats, or departmental/program support with curriculum alignment. Consults can be in-person, online, or by phone or email.
