Faculty: Register now for Teaching Circles program


The Centre for Academic Excellence invites Niagara College faculty members to participate in the Teaching Circles program.
Click here to register now.

The Teaching Circles program provides faculty members with an opportunity to gain new insight into your teaching through a process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection. A small group of faculty from across campus will form a “teaching circle” and invite one another to observe each other’s classes. The group will then meet over a complimentary lunch to discuss what they’ve learned about their own practice through the observation process. No evaluation. No feedback. No record. Just the opportunity to reflect on your teaching in the company of thought-provoking colleagues.

Teaching Circles members commit to three activities:

1) Attending an initial organizational meeting in September to meet group members and discuss logistics (approx. one hour),
2) Visiting each of the other circle members’ classes at least once in the months of October or November (three one- hour visits),
3) Meeting again, this time over lunch, in November or December for a follow-up reflection (one hour).

For more information about the program, please visit the CAE website.

To register for this program, use the link above. Please note that registration is limited to 32 faculty members across campuses and will close on September 21 at 5 p.m.
