All TLT Group institutional subscribers get
some prepaid consulting (our generic word for some form of
service) with their subscriptions. One question we're
frequently asked goes something like this: "We've only got
an hour. What can we do with that small amount of time?"
Alternative form of the same question: You're going to be on
campus and we've got a spare hour..."
There seem to be an almost infinite number
of answers to that question. So, rather than list them
all, here are just a few things we'd love to do for
you in an hour or less, on campus or online:
For your TLT Roundtable or other
steering committee and/or for a meeting of your staff

ePortfolios or 'clickers.'

faculty, conduct a model

prepare them for problems that almost always occur when
faculty change their teaching approach by using
Run a brief faculty workshop on some
aspect of assessment or evaluation. We
have a list of
such workshops developed or under development.
React to your plans for evaluating a grant proposal involving teaching
and learning with technology; or we could develop an
evaluation plan for your proposal with a couple of hours
of your consulting time. In either case, please give us
at least two weeks notice before your deadline!
Lead an introductory Brief Hybrid
Workshop with a group on your campus.
