Method encourages excellence in teaching and learning
WINDSOR, ON, Feb. 8, 2012 /CNW/ -
Nancy Chism, Professor Emerita of Higher Education and Student Affairs at the Indiana University School of Education, will be on campus to host an interactive session with faculty members on peer review of teaching. Peer consultation and review is an internationally recognized strategy to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in higher education that encourages instructors to collaborate and share classrooms methods and strategies to improve the student experience. This approach creates a "multiplier" effect that provides instructors with ongoing guidance and support in order to improve teaching methods, while respecting the self-directed quality of academic culture.
The University of Windsor will be developing a Peer Collaboration Network for Teaching Improvement over the next year, funded through the Strategic Priority Fund, which provides the resources to allow the university to enhance its operation and meet its strategic objectives.
The Peer Collaboration Network will capitalize on the commitment of a team of exceptional instructors and award-winning faculty members who are committed to driving change in the teaching and learning culture of the campus through peer leadership.
