This Teaching and Learning Commons program is designed to help instructors become more reflective teachers and enhance their teaching and learning based on individual goals.
Peer Support pairs instructor colleagues to share ideas, learn from one another, build skills, and potentially address challenges related to teaching and learning. Peer Support can occur in a variety of ways, and associates work together to determine the best approach based on their needs. It is not an evaluation or remediation program.
“Having a program like this helps new instructors solve problems, learn teaching tricks, and build confidence,” said Chris Rota, assistant professor of Wildlife & Fisheries Resources at WVU, who has been involved with the Program. “For example, I felt much more comfortable sharing problems with somebody outside of my program. I also attribute some of my increase in SEI scores to the advice that I received in the Peer Support of Teaching Program.”firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
