Awareness of what is really happening in one’s classroom can become the foundation for reflection, experimentation, and improved teaching and learning. We can increase our awareness through our own observations and evidence-gathering, and through peer observation. However, the observations we make about our own teaching practices and about our students pass through the filter of our habits, assumptions, and biases. In the BMCC Teaching Academy, increasing awareness through descriptive, non-evaluative feedback is a core principle, and a tool that empowers and informs. This interactive session, intended for faculty who have not yet participated in the Teaching Academy, will discuss what it means to describe rather than to judge and the importance of non-evaluative feedback in reflective teaching. We will share tools and strategies that the individual teacher can apply to their own practice.
This event is part of BMCC Open Teaching Week.
