Your one-stop shopping page for services provided to Avery Point faculty by the Academic Center.
1) Syllabus Collection
At Avery Point, the Academic Center maintains a database of syllabi in order to help students who transfer to different institutions and instructors who are new to teaching a particular course that has been taught in the past. Please use the below form to submit your class’s syllabus–one syllabus for each section you teach. The form allows multiple attachments so you only have to fill it out once.
2) Asynchronous Tutorials
The Academic Center is now offering asynchronous tutorials, in the form of PowerPoint slides with voice-over and video from a tutor, for online classes that are fully asynchronous. In place of online synchronous workshops, we can provide instructors with a PowerPoint that can be embedded into a HuskyCT course site and that covers topics we would normally cover during an in-person workshop. We are offering Asynchronous Tutorials for the following workshop topics:
- Thesis Development
- Time Management/Study Skills
- Concise Writing
- Citations/MLA Format
- Science Writing/Lab Reports
Please use the below Asynchronous Tutorial Request Form.
3) Tutor Class Visits
We would love to schedule a visit to your class to introduce your students to our tutors and to let them know about our services. Our Tutor Class Visits take 5-10 minutes and can be scheduled throughout the semester…whether in weeks 1 or 2, when students are just beginning, or as a refresher during mid-terms or before that big paper. Our tutors will explain our tutoring and group study options. You may ask for a return visit later in the semester if you want to keep your students connected with us. Please use this form to schedule a visit to your class.
4) In-Class Workshops
Over the years, the Academic Center has developed some innovative workshops applicable to a wide variety of courses. We have workshops on thesis development, organization, peer-review and more! Please click on this link to see our offerings: Available Workshops
Please note, workshops are not meant to substitute for class and the instructor must be present.
5) Feedback Form
Do you have any comments or suggestions? Do you feel there are improvements to be made? Problems to be addressed? High fives to give? Please fill out our feedback form. It can remain confidential or you can add your e-mail if you would like us to contact you with follow-up.
Please do not hesitate to contact us at (860) 405-9201.
Have a fantastic semester!
