Individuals Instructional Supports

Individualised Instructional Support

A range of specialized teaching and technology integration support options are available from the Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning- Artificial Intelligence. Individual Consultations are provided for IHU faculty members, research assistants, graduate teaching assistants, and instructors.

Teaching Consultations

Both teachers who voluntarily desire to improve their teaching and faculty who are required to do so by their academic units will receive assistance from the Center for Innovative Learning and Teaching- Artificial Intelligence (CILT-AI). Support from CILT-AI may come in the form of one-on-one meetings, in-class observations, or both.

Consultations can be given as needed, either once or repeatedly, to a person or group (such a department). The consultation process is an ongoing engagement and discovery process that aims to help teachers who want assistance achieve their intended outcomes. The CITL staff will offer the support and resources that are readily accessible, and faculty who need assistance can choose the type and level of consultation that is required. 

The effectiveness and expected results of consultations for teaching improvement and classroom observations will rely on how much time and effort the faculty who request assistance or are referred by their academic units put into the process. 

Potential topics for teaching consultation

  • Active learning strategies and active learning classrooms

  • Engaging students in the classroom

  • Collaborative learning, team-based learning

  • Problem-based learning

  • Culturally responsive teaching

  • Universal design for learning 

  • Authentic assessment strategies

  • Program and curricular assessment

  • Providing meaningful feedback to students

All consultations with CILT-AI about teaching improvement are regarded as confidential because it is allowed under IHU policy. The CILT-AI staff will make an effort to preserve everyone's privacy and will not reveal the names of individuals who need assistance. The CILT-AI staff may reveal information for the protection of the University and/or its faculty, staff, and/or students, or to report the development or training of a faculty member to the relevant academic unit. 

Technology Consultations

On how to incorporate technology into education, the Center for Innovative Learning and Teaching-Artificial Intelligence (CITL-AI) offers both individual and group consultations. The fundamental goal of consultations and other technology-related services provided by CITL-AI is always teaching effectiveness. In order to make sure the technology meets the underlying pedagogical requirement, a technology consultation frequently begins by looking at that need.

Potential topics for technology consultations include but are not limited to:

  • Creating an accessible syllabus 

  • Using PowerPoint effectively in the classroom

  • Implementing and conducting online discussions

  • Integrating multimedia into teaching

  • Creating and sharing videos for teaching

  • Testing and grading online

  • Planning and managing a course using NIU's Blackboard Course Management System

  • Adapting course materials for the online environment

  • Using student response systems (clickers)

  • Identifying additional campus resources for teaching with technology
