Teaching Observation Program
Observing another colleague's teaching can help to foster conversations about pedagogy, student learning, and classroom dynamics—and also is a great way to learn about another discipline.
Here is how the Teaching Observation Program works:
Approximately two–three faculty—from different departments or programs and across colleges—commit to:
- A conversation with each other before observing each other's class/es about particular areas of focus, such as strategies to engage students during the class period or working through challenging material.
- A visit to each other's class/es at least once during the semester.
- A conversation after each visit to talk about observations.
For your pre- and post-classroom visit conversations, the Faculty Development Program is happy to help cover hospitality (coffee, on-campus meals)—please contact Rebecca DeGrazia in JH109 (email@example.com) for details.
If you have questions about the Teaching Observation Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
