For Faculty

College Observation Week

College Observation Week will be October 21 - 25, 2019.

The observer registration site will be available a few weeks in advance.

College Observation Week gives instructors the opportunity to open their class to their fellow instructors, sign up to observe the classes of host instructors, or both. Fostering instructor interaction promotes discussion about teaching, disseminates pedagogical ideas, and highlights teaching as part of AS&E culture.  On October 25 from 12-1:30 pm, CETL will host an informal reception in the Humanities Center lounge to bring participants together to talk about their experiences, share thoughts, and generally engage around good teaching practice. 

Host instructors determine which sessions of their course they wish to open during the week and the number of observers for each session.  Courses must enroll AS&E students and be three or more credits.  After confirming these details with hosts, CETL issues an open call for AS&E instructors to sign up for observation slots. CETL connects host instructors with observer instructors by email prior to the class meeting in case the host instructor wishes to share any information with the observers in advance (such as handouts, PPT slides, articles that will be discussed in class). CETL also provides guidelines and information for both hosts and observers.
