Talk About Teaching is Back
By popular demand, the Faculty Development Center is re-launching the Talk About Teaching Program. The goal of this program is to encourage faculty to meet in pairs to discuss and work to improve their teaching practices. We have re-structured the program to make it a bit more formal than in the past.
In our new program, each participating pair will schedule an initial meeting to get to know one another and to share about the classes they are teaching, their current approach to teaching, and any specific goals that they have. They will then schedule a time to observe one of each other’s classes and will fill out a “formative teaching observation” (not an evaluative observation) during that visit. Finally, they will have a follow-up meeting where they share what they observed while visiting each other’s classroom. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer meal vouchers this year.
If you are interested in participating in this program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You can sign up in pairs (if you already know who you would like to participate with), or you can sign up we will find someone to pair you with.
