Online Teaching Observation Exchange

Faculty members are invited to gather and discuss online teaching and the strengths and weaknesses of their courses. They will then form small groups to observe and be observed asynchronously. Finally, participants will meet again to debrief and discuss, sharing ideas, observations and plans. Participants can join virtually at every stage.

Feb. 5, 10:30 a.m.-noon, in Central Classroom 103 or via Zoom: Participants will meet one another; introduce course observations; discuss online-teaching best practices, how to observe, what to look for; and organize observations.

The following 3 weeks: Form small groups with other online instructors to observe and be observed. Some small observation groups may choose to meet (virtually or in person) before meeting together with the larger group. This is optional and up to the group.

Feb. 26, 10:30 a.m.-noon, in Central Classroom 103 or via Zoom: Come back together to discuss what you learned and share ideas.
