What are Teaching Triangles?
The FCTE invites individuals who teach face-to-face courses to join a Teaching Triangle. A Teaching Triangle consists of three faculty members who observe in each other’s classes and spend time self- reflecting with their Teaching Triangle colleagues. This exercise is spread over the semester and is not a time-intensive commitment. Teaching Triangles are meant to spur personal self-reflection rather than peer evaluation. Participants focus their conversations on what they've learned about their own teaching from the observation process and avoid direct commentary on their colleagues' performance. The goal is to encourage a respectful, safe, and mutually-supportive experience for all involved.
Apply to be in a triangle today! Applications due February 12 by 5 p.m.
