Description

Formative Dialogues on Teaching is a program which encourages faculty-to-faculty observation of and conversation about teaching. The list of certified faculty Colleagues is published as “someone to talk to” about teaching. Faculty members who wish a dialogue will contact a Colleague and have them observe their teaching and then discuss their observations. Rather than being summative, this confidential process provides teachers with opportunities to engage in formative peer coaching for improved teaching and learning. At the end of the session, learners will be able to: describe the difference between summative evaluation and formative dialogues, list advantages of formative discussions about teaching between colleagues, and prepare for and discuss teaching observations. Those in attendance will obtain certification as a Colleague in the Formative Dialogue Program at Andrews University.
