During Open Classroom Week, October 1 – 5, a number of course instructors will open their classroom doors and welcome colleagues interested in observing how others teach and learn. Observers will have a chance to preview what will be happening in the class and an opportunity to chat with the course instructor after class.
We will all gather together at the end of the week to celebrate teaching and learning.
To reduce the disruption to the class, the number of observers in each classroom will be limited so watch the CTL website toward the end of September to preview the open classrooms and sign up to attend!
