Feedback on Current Teaching
Graduate students seeking feedback on current teaching should click here to schedule videorecording of the class session during which they would like to have their teaching observed and reviewed. After the class session has been recorded and the video has been transferred to DVD, the graduate student will meet with Teaching Center staff to review and discuss the DVD. The Teaching Center staff member will also provide written feedback on the graduate students' teaching and will make suggestions as appropriate. If video-recording is not possible or appropriate for the type of teaching (e.g. in laboratory teaching), the teaching observation and review will be completed via an in-class observation, rather than via video-recording.
All consulting sessions are confidential, and all DVDs become the property of the requesting graduate students.
To schedule a video-recording of your teaching, please submit the requested information on this online form.
