Our Instructional Consultants are available, at no cost, to discuss issues related to teaching and learning with anyone who teaches Penn State students.
We work with instructors on their courses, as well as with administrators and staff whose responsibilities impact teaching and learning.
Course design and planning
Teaching and assessment strategies
Schreyer Institute staff can discuss classroom or online strategies that will keep students motivated and engaged, how to construct appropriate tests (including multiple choice item-writing) and strategies for classroom management.
Our instructional consultants can assist you in obtaining student feedback through classroom assessment techniques, midsemester feedback and classroom observations. We can also help you to interpret SRTEs.
Evaluation for educational grants
Institute consultants will assist you with applications for external grants with a curricular or pedagogical focus from organizations such as NIH, NIMH, NSF and FIPSE. In addition, we can help design the evaluation sections for external grants.
Schreyer Institute consultants also meet with departmental/program/campus representatives to design custom programs for faculty or campuses (including new faculty and graduate students), assist with program assessment, or discuss other topics with broad applicability such as diversity or undergraduate research.
