Resources for Faculty

Inclusive Teaching at Princeton

Inspired by efforts across the Princeton University Community to enhance public dialogue about equality, diversity and inclusion on campus, a group of colleagues from the McGraw Center and across the campus have come together to actively connect these activities with our work with teachers and students, inside the classroom and in other learning spaces on campus. 

The Scholar as Teacher: Tip-Sheet Series

The McGraw Center offers a series of teaching tips for instructors throughout the academic year. This series addresses perennial teaching concerns, such as how to engage a large lecture class and what to do when class discussion stalls, as well as tips on advising independent work and mentoring graduate students. Our latest set of tip-sheets provides guidance on flipping a class.

Mid-Semester Course Evaluations

More and more faculty are finding mid-semester evaluations a valuable resource for their teaching. We at the McGraw Center would like to invite you to try this practice; if you’re not already doing so. Unlike the evaluations completed at the conclusion of a course, feedback from students midway through the semester provides information that can lead to mid-course adjustments, yielding a better experience for both instructors and students. For example, one Princeton instructor recently discovered that his students wanted more challenging problem sets than he had anticipated.
