Every term, the Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) offers microteaching sessions. These sessions provide participants the opportunity to practice different teaching methods and receive constructive feedback in a supportive, low-risk environment.

How it works

As part of the Fundamentals of University Teaching program, participants must complete three microteaching cycles. A microteaching cycle is comprised of:

  • submission and acceptance of a lesson plan
  • teaching an interactive lesson
  • receiving and giving oral feedback
  • receiving formal written feedback and assessment

Each microteaching session has 3-4 participants, one CTE facilitator, and is 2.5 hours in length. Participants are each given 10 minutes to teach their mini-lessons, followed by 15 minutes of self-reflection and peer feedback. The remaining half hour is broken down into introductions, debrief, and next steps.
