Waterloo High Impact Practice (CTE6740)Export this event to calendar

Tuesday, May 7, 2019 — 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EDT

Facilitator: Monica Vesely (Centre for Teaching Excellence)

Topic – Teaching Squares


A light lunch will be provided.   Please register so we can plan accordingly.

The WHIP Group is collective of Waterloo faculty and staff who support the use of High Impact Practices in teaching and learning. WHIP Group members meet for lunch a few times a year to share their successes, challenges, and tips for High Impact teaching and learning.

During CTE events, you have the opportunity to meet colleagues across campus interested in enhancing student learning, perhaps through the integration experiential learning or high impact practices into courses and programs, or by deploying different active learning strategies. To help build on the relationships and connections you’ve made, why not consider forming a teaching square? 

Teaching Squares  are ideal for those interested in broadening their exposure to different teaching techniques and styles by taking part in reciprocal classroom visits with other instructors. The focus is on the positive take-aways gained from observing other teachers in action rather than on evaluating your peers.  And it is a great way to stay in touch with individuals you have met at CTE events.

Join us on May 7 from noon to 1:30.  Monica Vesely will share more information on teaching squares, and how CTE can help you coordinate one.
