In consultation with faculty members, departments, and units, we assist in conducting program and course analyses in order to assist educators in making informed decisions about needed investments, both pedagogical and technological, within their courses and programs. We provide instructional support and expertise in the design, development, and implementation of face-to-face, mixed-mode, and fully online courses and programs, offering advice and recommendations on best practices, different teaching and learning models, and educational technologies. We collaborate with department heads and faculty members to develop program and course curricula. We are available to consult on curriculum mapping and alignment, course design, and the integration of research and teaching.
