Section Recap (20 minutes)

Faculty Visits (45 minutes)

Professors visiting at 7pm:

Some prompts given in advance:

  • What class are you currently teaching? Have you taught it in the past? What other courses have you taught?
  • For the course you’re currently teaching, what are your learning objectives and goals? How would you complete the sentence “At the end of the semester, I want my students to .” ?
  • How do you assess (in lecture, with the GSIs in discussion section, on the exams) whether these goals are being met?
  • If you have taught both non-major courses and major courses, how does preparing for those courses compare? How do your learning objectives for them differ?
  • What is your lecture style like? Do you employ active learning strategies (think-pair-share, etc.) in your lectures?
  • In your teaching experience, what strategies have you found to be effective? Not effective? (e.g., different lecture styles, type of homework problems, projects vs. exams, etc.)
  • What do you like best about teaching?
