Introducing the Consultative Learning Advancement Workshop (CLAW)

Wednesdays, June 14-July 12 12:00-1:30pm (ATLAS 301)

Starting June 14, the Graduate Teacher Program is offering a new, first-of-its kind series to ten participants that combines consultative microteaching and technology-based classroom observation: the Consultative Learning Advancement Workshop.  For five weeks, CLAW participants will give short “microteaching” lessons (5-7 minutes) in their discipline and receive non-evaluative feedback from facilitators and fellow students.  In addition, attendees will receive fine-grained data on their teaching via the GTP’s Generalized Observation and Reflection Platform, a new online classroom observation protocol designed to provide in-depth data about teaching behaviors and patterns.  With five weeks of microteaching sessions, non-evaluative feedback, and observation data, participants will be able to hone their teaching skills before the start of the new school year.

CLAW attendees receive the following for their participation:

  • Ten GTP Workshop credits;
  • Credit for your first Video Teacher Consultation (VTC) (contingent on doing a consultation session with a Lead Coordinator after the series ends)
  • Observation data and classroom metrics using the GORP system
  • Associate Certificate in the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning Network

To qualify for the above benefits, you agree to the following conditions:

  • Attendance is required at all sessions
  • Participation is required at all sessions (e.g., Must have a lesson prepared for each session; must give feedback to fellow attendees)
  • Must be in good standing with your department
  • Minimum one semester of teaching experience

Apply now.  Space is limited to ten participants.
