Join a Falcon Cast

A cast is a group of falcons and...
  • A Schmidthorst College of Business program
  • For gathering a diverse community of faculty members across a range of disciplines and pedagogical styles
  • For the collaborative sharing of best teaching practices through observation and discussion
An opportunity to focus feedback on aspects of course design or delivery important to you!
  • to develop new skills or reinvigorate your teaching
  • NOT a formalized review process or evaluation where one person is the "expert" to critique your pedagogy

What did previous participants think?
  • I saw really good ways of conveying the information!
  • I never realized the close connection between our subjects as we cover many of the same ideas but in different ways! Now we can help students make the connections too!
  • I observed a new approach to class time that was quite useful for me!
  • I received the insights I needed to feel more confident taking my classes to the next level!
