Peer Teaching Visit Opportunities Fall 2013: Observe Award-Winning Teaching Professors
How do they do it? If you’ve ever wondered what’s the difference between award-winning and adequate teaching skills, this is your chance to get answers. Peer Teaching Visits allow a small group of faculty to observe an Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor in the classroom. Encounter teaching styles that may differ from your own followed by an hour of conversation with the professor after the class. Discuss your observations and ways to adapt teaching styles and strategies for your own courses.
November 5 – Luis Maldonado
