STUDENT CONSULTANTS ON TEACHING
The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning’s Student Consultants on Teaching (SCOTs) are currently available for the Fall 2018 semester. The SCOT program connects faculty with highly-trained undergraduate and graduate consultants who can conduct focus groups with students or observe face-to-face, online, or mediated classes and provide student-centered, objective feedback to support faculty as they think about and practice their pedagogy. Requests can be made using via Qualtrics at https://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_e500SvNyCOU2OwZ, and inquiries can be sent to Landon Berry, SCOT Coordinator, at email@example.com.

If you have an idea for students to use these products in your class, submit a proposal by December 14th at http://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8upfRUU6LhaZjNP. Licenses can only be provided to students who are actively enrolled in a class. Please also note that the Division cannot provide technical support for Adobe products beyond activating and managing student Creative Cloud accounts.
