What is the Teaching Visit Exchange?

Faculty members have much to learn from each other’s teaching practice, yet we rarely have the opportunity to see each other’s teaching in action. Reciprocal classroom visits provide an opportunity to gain fresh insight and learn from and with your colleagues.

The Teaching Visit Exchange program is designed to provide a mutually supportive, non-evaluative opportunity for observation, reflection, and sharing of our teaching practice. This is not an evaluative program, but rather a process structured to build community and promote reflection of one’s own teaching through observing others.

By participating, you will have the opportunity to:

  • observe multiple classes taught by other faculty.
  • increase your appreciation for the work of your colleagues and the context of your students, and
  • enhance your own teaching practice through personal reflections, shared observations, and collegial discussion.
