Services for Faculty and Departments

The LTC coordinator is available to discuss teaching problems, strategies, and professional development opportunities. The coordinator will visit classes, arrange for videotaping, review course evaluations (see our sample course evaluations!), and discuss the ups and downs of teaching over a cup of coffee. Departments can arrange for a facilitated discussion of topics of general interest to their members.

Mentoring Program

New faculty members are paired with an experienced colleague from outside of their own departments. The purpose of the mentoring program is twofold:

  1. to help new faculty make their transition to the wider life of the Carleton community;
  2. to provide seasoned ears and voices for new faculty as they address the challenges and experience the rewards of teaching at the College.

Mentors are also available to visit classes, or arrange for new faculty to visit classes of other colleagues on campuses, coordinated by the LTC.

Student Observer Program

The Student Observer program provides faculty with trained students who will sit in on their classes and discuss observations, insights, and questions about the teaching and learning in a course. Learn more about the student observer program.
