TEACHING SQUARES

Would you like to:

  • 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…

The teaching squares project offers faculty at any stage in their career an opportunity to gain new insight into their own teaching through a non-evaluative process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection. The four faculty in each “square” agree to visit one another’s classes over the course of a semester and then to meet to discuss what they’ve learned. The purpose of a Teaching Square is to open up new spaces for reflection and conversation about teaching.
