This orientation is for graduate student instructors who are teaching or TAing a class in fall 2016 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 in fall term, 2016.
