TLC Consultation Request

The Teaching, Learning & Curriculum (TLC) team at HLS Library supports faculty seeking to design or enhance their courses to improve student engagement and learning. Among our many services, we offer one-on-one training on instructional technologies, skills instruction for your students, and assistance with student assignment design.  For major projects, we may hire an Instructional Technology Fellow to work with you.    Click here for more information and descriptions of recent projects we've done for HLS faculty. Our goal is to provide you with the teaching tools you need, and help you to incorporate new techniques and technology with no pain and a minimal time commitment from you. You share your vision, we make it happen.
