CLEAR provides consulting services for all types of instruction and all faculty at UNT. Upon request, CLEAR team members are available to assist the faculty member or course designer with improving their course. We can help you evaluate the course in the following areas using standard rubrics and will provide a detailed report with suggestions for improvements.  Whether you are teaching your course for the first time, building a new course, or converting your course from traditional learning to distributed learning—these are all excellent times to re-confirm the validity and relevance of your existing course objectives and modify them if necessary.
