Teaching Squares is a program offered to faculty and part-time instructors at UOIT, Durham College and Ontario Power Generation who are interested in gaining new perspectives by attending a few colleagues’ classes as observers and welcoming colleagues to attend a few of their own classes. Returning participants are welcome. 


The Teaching Squares program begins with a brief kick-off meeting near the start of the semester wherein participants are placed in small groups (‘squares’) and meet to coordinate schedules for classroom visits. Participants visit each of the group member’s classes once. Group members coordinate an informal meeting time to reflect on the experience together. At the end of the term, all participants meet for a celebration to reflect on the experience. 


Face-to-face or online
The approximate time commitment is 6 to 8 hours.
