Classroom observations are available for full time and adjunct instructors who request them. Classroom observations can be requested for a variety of reasons. Instructors requesting observation services should think careful about how this service can most benefit them.
Requesting a Classroom Observation
To request a classroom observation, email Dr. Jeffrey Parsons at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 270.250.9312.
Classroom Observation Process
Classroom observations involve a four step process, as outlined below.
Observations requested by an instructor are completely confidential. Details of all observations and feedback provided are limited to the instructor requesting the observation and the observer providing the feedback. Teaching and Technology Effectiveness maintains a record indicating that an observation was conducted, who conducted it, and who was observed. However, all records related to the observation process are transferred from Teaching and Technology Effectiveness to the instructor at the end of the observation process.
