CTE faculty colleagues are available to observe your class and to provide you with feedback from an outside perspective on the aspects of your teaching that interest you most. You will gain objective data regarding your classroom teaching behaviors as well as the observable behaviors of your students. Faculty can request observations of teaching to gain feedback on various aspects of teaching in order to gauge effectiveness in the classroom.  Click here to request an observation.
