Teaching Refinements and Observations Opportunities
Are you an instructor or a teaching assistant who is curious about how your students will respond to your teaching approaches in the Fall 2022 term? Consider utilizing one of the MacPherson Institute’s formative Feedback Services!
A Teaching Refinement is open to course instructors, and is an opportunity to have a member of the MacPherson Institute help you collect anonymous feedback from students and respond to it mid-way through the term. Applications for a Fall 2022 term Teaching Refinement are now open! Please note that we are only able to offer a limited number of teaching refinements each term. To apply for yours, please complete the MacPherson Institute Request Form by 11:59 pm on September 23rd, 2022.
A Teaching Observation is open to both course instructors and teaching assistants, and is an opportunity to receive feedback from a member from the MacPherson Institute on your teaching. This process can be implemented for virtual, online, or in-person courses anytime throughout the term. To request a Teaching Observation, please fill out the MacPherson Institute Request Form. Teaching observations can be completed at any time throughout the academic year.
Prefer to Do It Yourself? Check out our Collecting Midterm Student Feedback guides and pre-created, anonymous survey templates (available in Avenue and Microsoft Forms), with options appropriate for both large and small courses. You can even add your own custom questions based on the kind of feedback you’re looking for. Download the resources here.
