Classroom Observation

Authentic Teaching Tasks

Classroom Observation

To complete the traditional classroom observation students in the AT program are required to observe and reflect on three sessions of a class in which one is not a participant. Alternatively, participants can choose to reflect on their current experiences as a Teaching Assistant or Teaching Associate. If you are a Teaching Assistant or Teaching Associate, we recommend that you still choose to complete the traditional classroom observation for your own benefit, but it is not required.

If you choose to meet this requirement by reflecting on your experience as a Teaching Assistant or Teaching Associate, please see the TA/TAssoc Verification form.

Deadlines

You must submit these materials no later than the submission deadline of your graduating semester (see Submission Schedule).
