Teaching and Learning Workshops for Faculty

Join these interactive, 50 minute workshops! Each one will offer a window into a variety of contemporary issues and approaches to teaching and learning in the post-secondary classroom. All Niagara College faculty members are welcome.


Teaching Circles Program

The Teaching Circles Program provides faculty with an opportunity to gain new insight into their teaching through a process of reciprocal classroom observation and self-reflection.

A small group of faculty from across campus will form a "teaching circle" and invite one another to observe their classes. They will then meet over a complimentary lunch to discuss what they've learned about their own practice through the observational process.

No evaluation. No feedback. No record. Just the opportunity to reflect on your teaching in the company of thought-provoking colleagues, all while enjoying an equally exciting lunch.

NEW Part-Time Teachers' Development Program
