Classroom teaching observations: A how-to

Many faculty indicate that they would benefit from peer-led observations of their classroom teaching. Program officers often share that evaluations from in-class observations would supplement course evaluation reports. This session shares best practices for organizing, for oneself or for faculty colleagues, rigorous classroom-based teaching observations and feedback.  

Questions discussed in this session include:  

  • How might an individual instructor solicit observations from a faculty peer?  
  • What types of feedback can or should the observed instructor expect?  
  • How might a program use observational information in conjunction with mid-term or end-of-term course evaluations?  
  • Can such observations contribute to a program's annual or multi-year assessment efforts?

This workshop is part of the monthly Assessment Roundtable series facilitated by the Office of Assessment, Trinity College.

No registration is required for this session.
