Teaching Circles for Innovative Pedagogy

The Teaching Circles are designed to help faculty examine an existing course with an eye toward making it more engaging and active for student learning (and their own enjoyment of teaching!).

Conducting Effective Peer Observations of Teaching

Peer observations of teaching are a standard requirement on the road to tenure because high-quality peer feedback can spur professional growth. But what goes into conducting an effective peer observation? How do you invite an observation? How do you conduct one? What happens after the observation? Targeting faculty who would like to invite peer observation and those who conduct peer observations, this Teaching Circle focuses on strategies for initiating and conducting a peer observation and on frameworks for providing feedback following the observation. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to observe and apply many of these strategies in real time via a mixed reality simulation technology.
