Learn About Each Division

Peer Academic Coaching

Peer Academic Coaches are mid-to-late-stage graduate or professional students who have undergone extensive training to be able to help students identify and pursue goals related to learning and thriving academically at Stanford. Our Peer Academic Coaches work alongside our Professional Academic Coaches to provide one-on-one academic coaching to all Stanford students. 


Curriculum Design

Curriculum Designers are undergraduate or graduate students, responsible for the creation of presentation, workshop, studio, and academic programming content, as well as academic skills handouts and other asynchronous resources. They also brainstorm and develop innovative ideas and re-envision existing materials into a more accessible and engaging manner for students.


Engineering Equity

Through a joint partnership with the School of Engineering's Equity and Inclusion Initiatives, (EII) the Center for Teaching and Learning hires Engineering Learning Consultants to primarily work with Stanford graduate students in the School of Engineering. ELCs promote equity and inclusion in Engineering learning spaces and are current graduate students in the School of Engineering. 


Program Coordination

Program Coordinators are responsible for managing and facilitating academic skills events such as our study halls and time management refreshers. They are also responsible for managing the logistics for academic programming, events, workshops, study halls, and academic studios. They provide administrative support for the other four divisions and ensure operational efficiency of the Peer Learning Consultant Program.


Strategy and Operations

PLCs in the Strategy and Operations Division will be responsible for the creation, administration, and development of specialized projects, both internal and external, within the Peer Learning Consultant Program, with each PLC chosen for oversight of a specific project. The Strategy and Operations Division offers interested students the opportunity to set their own schedules and freedom to pursue independent work, as well as assigned tasks, that are both relevant to programmatic needs and their personal expertise, all in the spirit of continuous improvement of the PLCP. Current examples of roles that fall under the Strategy and Operations Division include the Frontend Web Developer and Internal Communications Strategist.


Communications

The Communications Division is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students who seek to increase awareness of CTL's student learning programs and events across campus, promote practical, evidence-based learning strategies, and foster a culture of academic resilience at Stanford. Team member responsibilities include graphic design, social media content creation, and copywriting. Projects include creating program and event flyers, developing visual and written content for Instagram, and contributing to CTL's weekly academic skills newsletter.
