I C TEACHING: Three Days of Teaching Visits
When: Monday, October 1st, Tuesday October 2nd, and Wednesday October 3rd
Would you like to watch one of your colleagues teach to see how they engage students, manage the classroom, or address challenging subjects? Do you ever feel the empty isolation in learning to teach? You’re not alone. Too often in higher education we instructors do not have the opportunity to watch and discuss each other’s teaching, and therefore we struggle in what Lee Shulman has called, “pedagogical solitude.” The Center for Faculty Excellence works to shift this isolation by creating opportunities for pedagogical community.
This semester we are proud to offer three intensive days of teaching visits. On October 1, 2, and 3, classes taught by some of the most well-respected (and willing) instructors across many disciplines will open their classroom doors to faculty of all ranks.
Below is a brief list of this year's participating host instructors and their course title:
Matthew Claus - Introduction to Music Education
Amie Germain - Human Development
Claire Gleitman - Dangerous Women in Dramatic Literature
Christine Guest - Television Production & Direction
Jean Hardwick - Animal Physiology
Christina Moylan - Legal and Ethical Issues in Health Policy
Debbie Rifkin - Aural Skills 3

TEACHING CONVERSATIONS: THE POWER OF OBSERVATION
Judith Ross-Bernstein (CFE) and her faculty colleagues kick-off
this recurring opportunity for frank and informal teaching
discussions. Classroom observations provide an opportunity for
expanding our real-time teaching narratives and to self-reflect
about the pedagogical choices we make as instructors. This session
addresses the why, what, and how of observing the pedagogy of
one’s cross-disciplinary peers. All faculty are invited.
Participants in I C Teaching : Three Days of Teaching Visits are
