The Koehler Center offers a variety of programs and services designed to encourage ongoing refinement of teaching through reflective pedagogy. Programs are available for graduate students, post-docs, teaching staff, adjunct faculty, and full-time faculty.

Faculty Interest Groups

A Faculty Interest Group (FIG) is a group of people with a shared interest in a particular aspect of teaching and learning. FIGs are intended to foster scholarly teaching and scholarship about teaching. While each FIG has a coordinator who is responsible for maintaining the group, the Koehler Center supports FIGs with organizational help such as finding meeting rooms and advertising.

Feedback on your Teaching: MAPs & Observations

The Koehler Center facilitates ways to gather feedback and engage in reflection about your teaching. Classroom Observations and Mid-semester Analysis Polls (MAPs) both provide formative feedback to you as an instructor that can help you better gauge the effectiveness of your teaching and its impact on students’ learning.
