Teachers Noticing Teachers
Teachers Noticing Teachers is a program of peer mentoring designed to allow professors to observe the teaching of a particularly accomplished colleague. Although many of the TNT participants have themselves been extremely accomplished teachers, they have made enthusiastic, inquisitive and probing students.
TNT participants will visit the host professor’s class once in the first few weeks and then everyone—participants, host teacher and the CTL director—will meet for lunch and talk. Conversation begins with two simple questions. “What did you see that you liked and that you think you could steal?” “What would you have to do in order to adapt that technique to your style and your class?”
From this simple beginning conversation roams over a variety of teaching topics depending on the host professor’s style and on the interests and concerns of professor-observers. Every group has provided rich conversation and has stimulated deep reflection into the nature of teaching and the fascinating complexity of teaching well.
Below is a list of the professors who have been TNT host professors. It has been a privilege to view each of these professors!
