Center for Teaching Excellence

  • Faculty Consultation


The doors of the Center for Teaching Excellence are open to faculty who wish to discuss specific teaching concerns and effectiveness as they relate to a particular class.

Instructional Design Consultation

Instructional Designers collaborate with you to create engaging and high-quality learning experiences. We are here to help you develop measurable learning outcomes and objectives, design courses that are both engaging and effective, and integrate universal design for learning principles. By assisting with creating assessments and utilizing active learning strategies, we strive to enhance student engagement and success. To schedule a consultation with an Instructional Designer, please complete and submit the Instructional Design Consultation Request Form. As with our general consultations, these services are offered at no charge to all USC faculty and graduate teaching and instructional assistants.
