Classroom Observations

Two types of classroom observations are possible: (1) Subject area and/or faculty development specialists are prepared to visit classes, videotape instructors (if so desired), and provide feedback on pedagogy and/or communication. Observations by a specialist can be arranged through the international faculty development program coordinator. (2) Alternatively, faculty members can observe a colleague's class themselves. One's department chair will be happy to make a recommendation.
