PIE Peer Teaching Observations:

The PIE Program is now offering Peer Teaching Observations during Fall and Spring semesters (NOT during Summer). If you would like constructive feedback from other teaching assistants on methods to use in the classroom, please reach out to us. Peer observations are a fantastic way to:

  • Receive constructive feedback from experienced TAs
  • Discuss your teaching strengths and areas for improvement in a low-stakes setting
  • Add professional development experience to your CV

If you have any questions about this professional development opportunity, please contact us at To submit a request for peer observation, please complete this Qualtrics survey.
