This Week for Faculty: Request a Teaching Observation by February 21!
Are you looking for confidential feedback on your teaching? Request a teaching observation by February 21! The CTL offers Teaching Observations with trained consultants who can help you think through your course goals, your teaching observation experience, and your future teaching. Additionally, the CTL works with schools, programs, and departments seeking to refine peer teaching observation practices.
To arrange for a teaching observation, please submit the online request form at least two weeks prior to the date when you would like to be observed. A teaching observation consultant will follow up to discuss your goals for student learning and for the observation.

“Having ongoing, non-evaluative conversations about my teaching feels essential to my work; it’s these conversations that make me a better teacher and a better scholar-activist.”
