Instructor Peer Assessment


Teaching is the process of Planning, Implementing and Assessing not only student learning but ourselves.  Through this model you had an opportunity to make intentional choices about creating a trusting, equitable learning environment in which all students would have an opportunity to learn and make connections with the content and each other. As a result of these intentional choices the opportunity gap is closed.  You will see that the concepts from the Intentional Teaching Practices model parallel the Evaluation rubric.

The two rubrics linked below can be used by a peer visiting your class to visibly assess your learning environment and your instructional practices.  This can be a formal or an informal observation.  Either way the intent is for anyone to be able to sit in your class and identify what they see in your classroom environment and your instructional practices.

We encourage you to use these same rubrics to guide your decisions about choosing your instructional goals(s) for the following semester. Refer back to the first three steps in this model for information and ideas on how to reach your teaching goals.

Take a look at the rubrics and contact CETL if you would like more information on how to use these rubrics or any of the information in the Intentional Teaching Practices model.
