Session description and delivery
Fundamentals Microteaching Sessions provide participants the opportunity to practice different teaching methods and receive constructive feedback in a supportive, low-risk environment. Find out more details on the Fundamentals Microteaching Session webpage.
In the Spring 2021 terms microteaching sessions are offered online, as synchronous (live) sessions, through Webex Meetings.
Steps to register for a microteaching session:
- Complete the Effective Lesson Plans (CTE202/CTE1202) workshop prior to signing up for your first microteaching session.
- Submit a registration request through the GoSignMeUp registration system. Difficulty registering? Read the instructions on the registration system home page.
Select one session you wish to attend. Once you submit your registration request, you will receive an automatic email from the registration system.
- Your registration request will be reviewed, and you will receive a registration confirmation e-mail within 7 business days. The confirmation email will include details about the microteaching session.
- You will then need to prepare your lesson plan using the Microteaching Lesson Plan and submit it to your session facilitator using the Waterloo LEARN "Fundamentals of University Teaching" course at least 7 days prior to the session. The facilitator will review your lesson plan and let you know if the lesson plan is acceptable or requires changes.
