Consultations and Midterm Feedback
CRLT’s consultants are available to speak with U-M faculty about designing courses and class sessions that deliberately attend to questions of diversity and inclusion. We also offer a facilitated midterm student feedback (MSF) service that can help instructors planfully gather input on their classroom environment.
We are also available to consult confidentially about difficult issues that arise in your classroom. To speak with a consultant about an emerging issue, call 734-764-0505.
CRLT offers a number of resources and guides to help instructors set up an inclusive teaching environment. Examples include:
- Framework and Strategies for Inclusive Teaching
- The Research Basis for Inclusive Teaching
- Setting the Tone for Inclusion
