Teaching Resources

Confidential Consultations and Observations

Get feedback and support for your teaching:  
  • Talk with a consultant about course design, particular assignments, challenging classroom dynamics, how to lead an effective discussion and more.
  • Interested in getting midterm feedback from your students--unofficially and anonymously? Check out these resource sheets from Teaching Centers at Washington U at St. Louis, or Duquesne U, which include sample midterm student evaluation tools. Note you can add these to your Camino page (there's an "ungraded survey" feature in the quizzes tab, which invites you to make results anonymous), or use an external tool such as SurveyMonkey. 
  • Arrange to have a trained observer visit your class, watch you teach and give you feedback via the Small Group Instructional Response (PDF). 
  • Visit the class of one of our Open Classroom Professors (PDF), watch another experienced teacher in action and have coffee and conversation about effective teaching.
