CIS Teaching and Learning Professional Support (TL Pro)

TL Pro services provide individualized, confidential support in the preparation, design, enhancement, management, and delivery of course content for any offering modality. Complete this form to request any of our diverse and strategic teaching and learning services.

All aspects of TL Pro services are confidential and non-evaluative.

The focused nature of our TL Pro services allows consultants to confidentially engage with limited elements, or “snapshot” views, of course components. Thus, any/all elements of this engagement will remain confidential and are NOT intended to evaluate an educator’s instructional efficacy. As such, any/all service artifacts (including but not limited to survey data and consultant feedback) are provided to requesting instructors only, and will not be shared with any other individual under any circumstances. Instructors wishing to share service report documents outside of TL Pro engagements, should do so at their own discretion.

The Top Hat Classroom/Audience Response System is a 100% web-based solution that offers professors and presenters the ability to interact with face-to-face and online audience members via web-enabled devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, etc.). The system is primarily used in course-related scenarios, but can also be used for meetings, special events, and more. Additionally, the system offers the ability to author, adopt, and assign interactive electronic textbooks, course notes, question packs, slide decks, handouts, and other Open Educational Resources (OER) to students. Please, complete this form and provide as much information as possible regarding your interest in using the system as part of a course or in a general audience environment. For example: course or event name, term or date of event, estimated number of students or audience members, if you require training, special needs, etc.
