Peer Reviewer Development Series
January 5, 6, & 7, 2022
Teaching observations benefit instructors: a peer observer can help faculty achieve their teaching goals by illuminating how particular teaching and learning practices are working and guiding peers to consider next steps in continuous improvement. Also teaching observation reports are often part of award and promotion processes. Observing someone’s teaching is like other skills we have—it takes dedicated practice and time. If you want to develop these skills further, sign up below for this three-part series.
The Partnership for Inclusive Education (PIE) pairs faculty and students for a semester-long exchange of perspectives on teaching and learning in a particular course. Faculty reflect on their teaching goals and strategies in conversation with a student not enrolled in their course. We welcome new and returning faculty partners and student consultants each semester. For more information visit the CTLE services page.
