Our work with faculty is guided by the belief that teaching, like scholarship, benefits from careful reflection, active collaboration, purposeful innovation, and thoughtful assessment.
We provide group workshops and individual consultations with faculty throughout the year on any aspect of teaching, including course and syllabus development, assessment design and classroom student engagement activities. All instructors also are assigned a McGraw instructional designer to guide them with the use of the University’s learning management system, Canvas.
We work with individual faculty or departments that would like to discuss and evaluate their teaching quality and improve teaching effectiveness by designing supplemental teaching evaluations, conducting live classroom observation and holding focus groups with students regarding their learning experiences. All collaborations are tailored to the needs of the individual faculty member or department. Please contact McGraw if you would like to discuss such a teaching assessment collaboration.
Evaluation of Teaching Initiatives
In addition, we provide guidance and can run evaluations of teaching initiatives. Please reach out to the McGraw Center to schedule a consultation.
