Want to rehearse your teaching practices? The CTL offers Microteaching Sessions to give you direct feedback and support. Check our upcoming workshop if you wish to prepare a syllabus from scratch.

Microteaching

The CTL offers Microteaching sessions that can help you rehearse teaching practices and get direct feedback and support, whether or not you are currently teaching. We invite current Columbia graduate students or postdocs to register individually, or with a small group of peers wishing to do a session together. Register for a scheduled session or request a custom session.

Microteaching sessions are gatherings of 3-4 participants and a facilitator. Participants take turns delivering short samples of instruction to each other, and offering each other structured feedback. This feedback focuses on organization, clarity, engagement of learners, and any other specific aspect of teaching that the instructor would like feedback on. These sessions are a good way to rehearse teaching practices and get direct feedback and support, whether or not you are currently teaching.
