Faculty-to-Faculty Peer Mentoring

TEP Faculty-to Faculty Peer Mentoring is for Lewis & Clark faculty who seek to improve their teaching expertise with support from our skilled, experienced Lewis and Clark peer mentors. All peer mentors have taken TEP’s peer observation training and they are focused on providing support, not assessment or evaluation, that is constructive and collaborative. Participating in the program is completely voluntary and confidential. Available to all faculty members of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS): tenured, term, tenure-track, visiting, adjunct.

Peer mentoring includes…

  • Focused assistance in identifying and addressing challenges in a particular class
  • An initial classroom observation at any time of the semester
  • Follow-up classroom observations, if desired
  • Assistance with post-observation goal setting
  • Support in developing and utilizing effective pedagogical techniques
  •  Collaborative and in-depth consultations focused on one or more courses
  • Feedback on syllabus planning and course design
  • Facilitation of a mid-semester, consensus-based, student feedback process to provide concrete suggestions for your course, if desired
  • Ongoing mentoring and collaborative goal setting (beyond the single semester of classroom observation)
  • Assistance with interpreting end-of-semester student evaluations
  • Support for departments or programs who wish to evaluate and improve upon shared student experiences in the major or minor
