In addition to DCAL’s sponsored initiatives, we offer several consulting services pertinent to teaching and learning.

Course Design/Teaching and Learning Support

DCAL is pleased to offer one-on-one consultations on syllabus and course design for your specific needs. Especially useful for new faculty members, we can help you design syllabi and course descriptions that effectively communicate your teaching goals and make good use of the teaching resources at Dartmouth.

You may consult with the DCAL director or associate directors at any time on individual problems that may arise in your classes. We have helped people with issues of academic dishonesty, disrespectful behavior, and incidents that have threatened to destroy the atmosphere of mutual respect and trust that effective teaching requires. We are alert to concerns about diversity, accessibility and different learning styles. All one-on-one consultations with DCAL staff remain strictly confidential.

For an appointment, call (603) 646-2655 or email us.

Low-Residency/Online Learning

DCAL provides consulting and assistance for schools, programs, departments, or centers at the College that wish to investigate or initiate a low-residency or online program. DCAL works to connect people and resources currently involved in low-residency/online initiatives at the College, in order to share expertise and, where appropriate, resources.

For more information, email Joshua Kim, Director of Digital Learning Initiatives.

Grant Support

DCAL can help with the education and outreach components of research grants — or connect you with people on campus who can help.
