Strategies for classroom observations (for observers and observees) with Professor Chloe Armstrong (Philosophy)

On Tuesday, November 9, 2021 from 4:30-5:30PM via Zoom, Professor Armstrong (Philosophy) will give a 25-minute presentation on strategies that serve a range of goals, including the modeling of new pedagogical innovations, data collection on experimental teaching and new practices, revising current practices, peer-to-peer observations, self-observations using recorded materials from remote course content, and classroom observations that may serve in the promotion and reappointment process. After the presentation, she will host a 30-minute question and answer (not recorded) session. An RSVP is encouraged but everyone is warmly welcome regardless!
