  Request someone to visit/observe my class

At your request, an ITLAL staff member can be available to visit your class for a wide range of purposes:

A typical observation has three parts: 1) a short meeting between instructor and consultant in advance of the observation, to ensure that the observer is aware of the instructor's goals for the class; 2) the visit itself, in which the observer remains silent and takes notes on what is happening in the classroom; 3) a post-class meeting, in which the instructor and observer debrief the class and pull from the experience anything that might be useful to the instructor. If desired, an instructor can request the observer to provide a document summarizing the outcomes of the observation-some instructors find this kind of document to be useful as part of a teaching portfolio.

Instructors are asked to arrange for classroom observations two weeks in advance of the class meeting to be observed. All observations are confidential unless you indicate otherwise.
