Consultation. Faculty and staff are welcome to consult individually with a BSC academic counselor on issues related to students' learning and development. In addition, BSC academic counselors facilitate reflective practice discussions and workshops for groups of faculty and staff, to provide opportunities to reflect on how we go about our work.
Workshops and guest lectures. Faculty and staff can request a workshop or guest-lecture tailored to the needs of their students. Popular topics include time management, paper/thesis-writing, and reading skills.
The Reading Course. Faculty and staff who work with students (for example, teaching fellows, course staff, resident/non-resident tutors, proctors, freshman/sophomore/concentration advisers, and undergraduate/graduate coordinators) may qualify for complimentary registration in the Harvard Course in Reading and Study Strategies. Contact the BSC to confirm your eligibility.
