Teaching and Learning / May 2022

Collaborative Classroom Observation & Feedback 

Sometimes we just want to know what we are doing well and what we can do better to guide our students through learning. Maybe the results we receive on SFQs are not what we expect or hope for. Perhaps we just need to know if we are using technology in the best way to engage students. We can help! 

CTL is launching a Collaborative Classroom Observation & Feedback program to provide faculty with support in continuous improvement of instructional practice. This opportunity will allow a faculty to invite a teaching and learning specialist from CTL to be a passive observer in their class on one or more occasions. The faculty and specialist then meet to discuss successes and potential recommendations for instructional growth and develop strategies for implementation.
