Here’s your chance!  The Teaching Squares program provides advisors, faculty, and adjuncts with an opportunity to gain new insight into teaching through a non-evaluative process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection.  As part of this program, you will find a partner that you would be interested in visiting their classroom 3 times during the semester. After you and your partner each complete 3 classroom visits, you will get together for your “Square Share.” This session provides you with an opportunity to meet and discuss class visits with your partner. It is a face-to-face connection with your colleague and a wonderful opportunity to share conversations about teaching and learning.The final meeting date for Teaching Squares will be our Round Up, where we will share what things you learned from the experience.
