Faculty in Residence Class Observation

The Faculty in Residence program offers the opportunity to observe the class of another faculty member from one's own or a different discipline, and to discuss with other faculty members some of the teaching strategies, methods and practices already being used by some of Xavier's most talented teachers. The CTE's new Collaborative Learning Studio and Experimental Classroom in the Conaton Learning Commons provide new tools for classroom observation; this program will allow us together to experiment with these new facilities.

During the Fall 2010 semester, Dr. E. Paul Colella opened his class, PHIL 388: Freud and Philosophy to a small groupof faculty observers on five occasions. After each class, faculty stayed to talk with Professor Colella about the class.
