Classroom Observations

It can be difficult to assess our own effectiveness in the classroom. One of ATLE's most valuable services is classroom observations, offered only if the faculty member in question requests it directly. These are collegial consultations, not evaluative, and the results are not shared with anyone but the faculty member. ATLE can also videotape your class session so that you can watch yourself in action—always an instructive thing to do!
