Announcing the fall-semester cohort of Peer Instructional Coaching

Formerly "Peer Observation of Instruction for Continuous Improvement," Peer Instructional Coaching is an initiative designed to take the threat and risk out of peer classroom observations and make them useful and relevant for Metro State faculty.

Participants benefit both from observing and from being observed. Past participants have remarked that the experience:

  • enabled one another to see how different students in different disciplines interact with their teachers.
  • provided the opportunity to see how teachers in different departments approached their teaching.
  • opened their perspectives to very different teaching styles.
  • provided actual ideas and constructive feedback.
Additional information, including expectations and instructions for joining this semester's cohort, is at the Peer Instructional Coaching page of the CFD Web site.
