Context and Reflection: I worked with another student in my department, Jason Patskoski, to assess each other’s teaching. We observed each other instructing class during spring 2014. We met prior to each observation to discuss the upcoming class, and afterwards to talk about the strengths of class and areas for improvement.
After Mr. Patskoski’s observation, discussing class with him, and reading his observation report, I felt somewhat more confident in my delivery of the course material. I feel like I could improve the example problems given as active learning exercises, but that having those incorporated in the lecture was helping keep students alert and engaged.
This questionnaire gives some context to my classroom and was provided to Mr. Patskoski prior to his observation of my class.
After observing my class, Mr. Patskoski provided this review of my instruction.
