Teaching Observations

If you didn't already know, we offer Teaching Observation for Faculty. If you would like someone to observe and provide feedback for you just contact us at ofdp@ucalgary.ca.

What participants of this program have to say about their experience:


 

Having a knowledgeable expert teacher observe my own teaching and provide feedback was immensely valuable. I felt validated in many of the things I am already doing, I was prompted to consider adding some new techniques to improve my learners' retention of concepts, and I left with some useful articles for further reading. I would encourage everyone, whether a new or an experienced teacher, to take advantage of this opportunity. I know it will help me take my teaching skills to the next level.
