Led by Pamela Pollock
We may wonder or worry about how we’re doing as teachers-- but how do we know? As scholars, we are always developing our research, but how do we think about learning and growing as a teacher? In this seminar, we will use Stephen Brookfield’s lenses for reflective teaching-- 1) self, 2) students, 3) colleagues, and 4) scholarship-- as a framework to consider these questions and build our own toolkit for becoming critically reflective teacher-scholars. We will review, discuss, and model effective mechanisms for collecting feedback, making sense of it, and using it to improve our practice-- in the pursuit of better student learning and classroom experiences. Participants will conduct both a peer observation and complete a video consultation over the course of the seminar, which is designed for current instructors at all stages who are interested in becoming both more reflective and more intentional about their own teaching practice and development. Participants must be teaching in the spring term.
This is the first session of a 6-week seminar. Registration required.
