The following Feedback on teaching Initiatives complement the end of term Student Feedback on Courses survey. Each initiative encourages a dialogue about teaching and identifies areas of strength and areas for growth in your teaching. For a more thorough description of the individual benefits of each initiative, please click here (PDF).
Mid-semester student feedback
What is it? An opportunity to collect student feedback on teaching at the half way point of the semester. Simply ask a trusted student to read the instructions and allow 7 to 10 minutes for students to complete the brief, anonymous, tailored (if desired) student survey around weeks 6 - 8 of your course. Students will deposit their feedback in an envelope that is sealed and returned to faculty, who can review independently or in consultation with an FCDC Educational Developer.

What is it? FCDC staff or a peer attends a minimum of one hour of a class of your choice to observe your teaching. The observer will provide you with written feedback and a consultation to outline areas of strength and areas for growth. You can also request to be videotaped so that you can review your classroom teaching experience at a later date.
* Not recommended for the first or last week of class
