Teaching Squares are back and available for Spring 2018 semester. Teaching Squares open up spaces for reflection and conversation about teaching to faculty at any stage in their career.
How it works …
Four faculty in each “square” agree to visit one another’s classes over the course of a semester and then have a final meeting to discuss what they’ve learned.
You will …
- Reflect upon your teaching practice
- Meet other faculty who are interested in talking about teaching and learning
- Curious to see how others teach outside of your own discipline
- Learn from your colleagues about other ways of teaching, evaluation, use of materials, technology and more…
