Teaching Circles

Based on a program developed at St. Louis Community College, McKendree University's Faculty Teaching Circles provide a non-threatening forum for faculty to enhance their teaching skills and build camaraderie. Faculty participants observe each other in the classroom and then meet to discuss what constitutes effective teaching. The program focuses on different teaching styles and other aspects of teaching, while eliminating evaluations and judgments. If you are interested in joining or would like more information, contact Ann Collins, Professor of Political Science, avcollins@mckendree.edu or (618) 537-6897.
