Connect with the Chapman student’s classroom experience.
This spring, the IETL’s Faculty Open Classroom Initiative (FOCI)will promote shared understandings about teaching and learning on Chapman’s Orange campus by encouraging faculty members across disciplines to visit their colleagues’ classes. Rinker Campus faculty can look forward to a similar initiative to occur in Fall 2018.
This non-evaluative, voluntary classroom visitation program aims to have faculty members, both full-time and part-time:
- connect with one another as teaching colleagues,
- engage with content that is outside of their teaching assignments, and
- gain perspective on the Chapman student experience in a variety of classroom and disciplinary settings.
In appreciation for their participation, all faculty hosts and visitors will receive two (2) complimentary lunch tickets to the Faculty Athenaeum in Argyros Forum.
All classroom visits will occur during FOCI Week, Wednesday, April 11 through Tuesday, April 17.
