What Does a TLC Associate Do?
  • Collaborates with faculty in like disciplines on best practices in teaching and technology in person on campus and/or via LOTS (Live Online TLC Support)
     
  • Provides a web page identifying areas of teaching expertise for fellow faculty to find. These are linked underneath their pictures above
     
  • Provides faculty with their own portal site and training!
     
  • Provides scheduled appointments to SSC Faculty, Staff and Administrators for TLC help (see their TLC pages linked above to learn more about the specific tools and training each provides)
     
  • Develops and provides TLC workshops, when available
      
  • Provides TLC drop-in opportunities, when available
     
  • Work with, maintains and reports weekly summaries of TLC appointments to SSC TLC & eLearning  Director, Sara Newman and SSC's Instructional Services Dean, Mary Jo White

As faculty themselves (with teaching loads),
TLC Associates understand

  • many faculty are unaware of the TLC and its offerings - TLCA's seek out faculty with like disciplines  to offer their teaching and technology experience in the form of training and collaboration
     
  • all faculty are very busy - scheduled workshops are difficult to attend with their varying schedules - TLCA's offer one-on-one appointments to provide training and help/advice
     
  • some faculty are interested in online delivery of course materials but don't want to become web developers - TLCA's focus on sharing easy to use tools to help faculty delivery course materials and information effectively to their students, peers and administrators
     
  • all faculty appreciate best practices regarding online teaching and face-2-face teaching - TLCA's continually enroll in academic teaching courses and share their own experiences to help guide and recommend tried and true technology and teaching tips
     
  • many faculty appreciates a brief follow up after training/assistance - TLCA's will want to check back with you to determine the value of your training/work together and if they can be of further service
      
  • many faculy appreciate online (text and video) training materials that support their individual needs - TLCA's typically produce and share text, website and video training resources often based upon questions and discoveries made with you
