Inclusive Teaching Guide: Collaborating with Faculty

Effective teaching is a dynamic, not static, process. Whether you have years of experience or are just beginning to teach, there is always room to expand your repertoire, explore a new approach, or reflect on an aspect of your practice.

Tips and Strategies

  • Review the syllabus and research assignment, and encourage instruction session(s) to be scheduled at the point of need.
  • Discuss goals, learning outcomes, and expectations for the class. This can be a process of negotiation and an opportunity for you to demonstrate your professional expertise.
  • Share your class plan with the faculty prior to the session.
  • Clarify logistics: how many students? will students have their own laptops? what time is the class usually released? does the professor need time at the start or end of class to make any announcements? do any students need accommodations to participate fully?
