In response to faculty requests, the Center for Educational Resources has established the Faculty Exchanges program. The Faculty Exchanges program aims to create a collaborative teaching environment where fellow instructors can introduce and demonstrate new teaching methods to their peers through informal observations.
Faculty and graduate students may observe the teaching methods of fellow faculty who volunteered to participate in the program. Participants – host and observer - will receive a gift card to a campus coffee shop so they can debrief in a relaxed environment after the classroom visit.
This program is intended to serve the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering.
Read more about the program in the JHU Hub article, "Teachers learning from each other."
Below are steps to guide you through the Faculty Exchanges process.
Step 1. Find an instructor to observe: Below is a list of faculty who volunteer to invite others to observe their teaching methods. Please use the filter options to identify an instructor by discipline or teaching method.
Step 2. Email CER to request an observation: Send an email to CERweb@jhu.edu to request an observation with your preferred instructor. CER staff will make an introduction so you may schedule a convenient time to observe their classroom.
Step 3. Discuss the experience over coffee or tea! CER will provide you and your host with a coupon redeemable at the BLC’s Daily Grind. If possible, we hope that you use it to find a time after class to debrief and discuss the teaching methods observed, although meeting is not required. You still get to keep the coupon!
Interested in having your teaching methods observed?
CER is always looking for faculty members who exemplify evidence-based teaching practices and innovative methods! If you are interested in being a part of the program and would like to volunteer as a host, please email CERweb@jhu.edu. This program is open to Homewood faculty only.
