Open Classroom Week for Faculty

From February 26 to March 3, some new “students” will be sitting in NMC classrooms. These students will actually be faculty participating in Open Classroom Week. This is a CIE-sponsored initiative to promote contemplation and conversation about teaching and learning around campus. Faculty will volunteer to open their classrooms at specific times during this week; others can sign up to come visit. This is a no-strings attached initiative–no meetings before, no forms to complete, no evaluation or feedback given. It’s just a time to come see what our colleagues are doing and then think about our own practice.

There are two ways to participate:

  1. Open your classroom: There are no special expectations or preparations required–just a willingness to share your teaching with colleagues.  If you would like to volunteer to open your classroom, please email Kristen Salathiel by Friday, Feb. 9.
  2. Visit a classroom: There are no special expectations or preparations required here either. Just sign up for a specific class that piques your interest and then come observe and enjoy. Sign-ups will begin on Feb. 15 on a first-come, first-serve basis. (Adjunct faculty stipend available.)
