Non-evaluative/self-reflective: The CETL Teaching Squares Program allows faculty to gain new perspectives and insights into their teaching through a completely non-evaluative process. It works through a process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Four faculty members join forces: Each Teaching Square consists of four faculty members, preferably from the same campus, but from different disciplines, who work together for a MONTH. These faculty visit each other’s classes and then meet and discuss, through a guided process, what they’ve learned from the observations.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
• Attend one Kick-Off event/ initial meeting. A this event/ initial meeting participants will be oriented to the program, material will be distributed, and square arrangements will be discussed.
• Provide a syllabus and other relevant information about your course to your Square Partners.
• Visit one another’s classroom at least once.
• Meet again for one follow up meetings once all the observations are completed.
Your campus facilitators will assist with coordinating visits, but each group determines its own schedule.
