A Year of Teaching Squares: How Cross-Disciplinary Peer Observations Improve Your Teaching
WhenThursday, May 31, 2018, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
Description

Faculty at many colleges and universities across the US are creating Teaching Squares, a community of faculty dedicated to observing our cross-disciplinary colleagues, not to evaluate or write letters but in order to reflect on how we can improve our own teaching practices. Besides observing, this process involves meeting with our partners to discuss best practices.

This talk discusses how almost thirty SIAS faculty participated in our pilot Teaching Squares program over the 2017-2018 academic year. We will celebrate a sampling of engaging teaching methods going on in our classes, share how we incorporated new methods into our own teaching, and reflect on what we learned from participating in Teaching Squares.  We invite faculty from across UWT to join us in a second year of Teaching Squares. Come find out how to get involved. How can Teaching Squares invigorate your teaching and strengthen our community?

Interested faculty and 2017-2018 Teaching Squares participants are also invited to join us at our year-end Teaching Squares celebration meeting on Thursday, June 7th at 12:30 to 2:00pm in GWP 320.
