CTL Staff Observations

CTL staff use a collaborative approach to any consultation and observations. The process typically begins with a preliminary discussion about the kind of feedback desired, the purpose of the classroom observation, the context of the course, the students in the course, and any other logistical issues which may need to be taken into consideration.

The CTL also has video equipment that faculty can use to record their class for their own review. CTL staff can assist in the recording process, if desired.

Important Note about Confidentiality

Evaluation of faculty for the purpose for reappointment or promotion is very different from evaluation of teaching and learning for the purpose of improvement. Therefore, while faculty may share information about their interactions with the CTL with others, CTL staff will keep all conversations with faculty about their teaching and learning in strict confidence. CTL staff will politely decline writing a letter on behalf of a faculty member’s employment, reappointment, or promotion, even if asked to by that person.
