- Peer Learning Assistants (PLAs) are undergraduate students selected by the faculty member to facilitate teaching and learning activities that might otherwise be difficult for the faculty member to carry out by him/herself. To discuss how PLAs might help improve your students' learning while reducing your workload, please contact Mary-Ellen Boyle.
- Private Consultation Services. We offer confidential individual teaching consultations to anyone who teaches at Clark, including full time and part time faculty and graduate teaching assistants. Consultations are typically requested when an instructor has a specific teaching area in which s/he has questions or wishes to improve, but can also be requested for more general teaching feedback. A consultation usually begins with a meeting to determine your interests and needs and to review your course. If you wish, we may proceed to one or more classroom observations, with written feedback provided, and/or continue with additional meetings. Other possibilities include, but are not limited to, videotaping your class and reviewing your student ratings. You make the decisions, and we tailor the consultation to your needs and available time. Consultations are done by Mary-Ellen Boyle.
- The Colleges of Worcester Consortium Certificate in College Teaching Program. The certificate program is designed for graduate students, adjunct faculty, and full-time faculty who are either pursuing or engaging in a career in academia. This program offers graduate students and faculty the opportunity to learn best practices in college teaching with the theoretical background that supports it. Courses may be taken "a la carte" or in pursuit of the 1.5-unit Certificate in College Teaching. Clark faculty and graduate students may qualify for tuition reimbursement for Certificate courses. Follow the links for information about how to register and apply for tuition reimbursement. The Certificate in College Teaching Program was recently featured in an article in the Teaching Professor Newsletter.
