Peer Instructional Coaching--Last call for participants

This week on Wednesday 9/14, a cohort of faculty will be meeting at 2pm at the Center for Faculty Development to form a peer instructional coaching cohort. More information about this opportunity is at Center for Faculty Development Web site.

Experience from past semesters has shown that for a cohort approach to peer observation and peer coaching to be effective, we will need to take the time to get to know one another, particularly around the topic of teaching, and build trust. This is why the cohort will be meeting twice before pairs break off and observe one another’s classes. But don’t worry, we won’t be falling backward into each other’s arms!

It's not too late to become part of this cohort. Cohort members have some light shared reading to do before this first meeting. To receive those readings and to be added to the list for Wednesday, email Mark Potter.
