Fall 2023 Teaching Triangles

This (in-person only) workshop is for graduate student instructors who are teaching or TAing a class in Fall 2023 and would like to participate in peer teaching observation and feedback. Completion of Teaching Triangles during a semester in which you are an instructor or TA can fulfill the teaching & observation requirement of the Certificate in College Teaching. A Teaching Triangle consists of three instructors who:

  • Complete a training orientation in peer teaching observation practices (Teaching Triangles Orientation)
  • Observe at least one class taught by each triangle partner as well as be observed once by each partner
  • Reflect on the class observation experience
  • Share observations & reflections with partners

The steps listed above are spread over a single semester and completed well before finals begin. Participating in Teaching Triangles is not a time-intensive commitment and should not have a negative effect on your research, dissertation or time to graduation. Note that Teaching Triangles is run every semester; this registration is only for those teaching Fall term 2023.

If you are TAing, the professor of the class will need to confirm your role with the teaching experience form. You will need to submit this in few weeks; just look it over now. For questions, contact Dr Hugh Crumley <>
