Teaching Observation Program

Observing another colleague’s teaching can help to foster conversations about pedagogy, student learning, and classroom dynamics. It’s also a great way to learn about another discipline or area of focus, and engage with colleagues on the important work of teaching. To assist in this, faculty are invited to participate with Butler colleagues in a Teaching Observation Program each semester. Learn more.
