Professional Development through Teaching Squares

Teaching squares provide faculty with a unique networking opportunity while learning about students, programs, and instructional techniques here at Hawkeye Community College.  A teaching square consists of four faculty participants from different disciplines.  Each participant will do the following:

  • Coordinate class visit dates/times with group participants.
  • Observe a class taught by each participant in the Teaching Square.
  • Identify one thing from each class you found effective, useful, or interesting and a way you could implement it into your own classes.
  • Complete a Teaching Square Reflection form for each observation and submit it to both the Brobst Center and the faculty member you observed.
  • Attend the end of semester All Squares Celebration with other Teaching Squares, time and date TBD.

Following successful completion of the Teaching Square, each member will earn a certificate of completion from the Brobst Center for his or her Quality Faculty Plan.
