Reflective Teaching
When: Friday, April 5, 2:00 – 4:00 PM
Location: Searle Center for Teaching Excellence

CTECS receive a great deal of attention in the graduate student teaching community, but they are only one method of evaluating your teaching. In this workshop, we’ll shift the focus to other strategies of evaluation. We’ll demonstrate and discuss a variety of methods, so you can be sure to find one that suits your teaching style. In the process you’ll learn techniques for helping your students generate productive feedback about their experience in your course. These informal evaluations will not only improve your teaching and help you build a professional teaching portfolio, but they help build stronger relationships between you and your students.

Workshop Facilitators:

Benjamin Chiles is a fifth-year PhD student in the Communication Studies department and a Graduate Teaching Fellow of the Searle Center for Teaching Excellence. 

Kati Sweaney is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in Interdisciplinary Theatre & Drama. Her work examines scientists and educators who use performance to teach non-scientists about the human brain. At Northwestern she has taught theatre practice, history, and theory; humanities; and English.
