Faculty may freely contact an Instructional Technology Consultant (ITC) to schedule an individual consult. One of these consults will normally focus on your curriculum design, technology use, and pedagogy in your course here at CSU Chico. These can be one-off events or recurring consults as your needs require and will naturally cover any relevent issues in which you need assistance

TLP consultants are all well-versed in supported campus technologies as well as having their own specializations which may fit particular instructional needs you may have. Please see the biographical information below.
