Engaging Classrooms Observation

What is Engaging Classrooms Observation? 

Our QEP media team records one class period and then, with the Engaging Classrooms Observation (ECO), your recordings are coded. This produces a personalized baseline of active learning in your classroom. The data will only be shared with you, but you are welcome to share it if you wish.

Is there a student version?

If you would like to examine your students’ perceptions of active learning in your class, we have an online version of the Engaging Classrooms Observations designed specifically for that purpose. We can send you a Qualtrics link to share with your students, and once administered, we send you a report that you may use to adjust your teaching if necessary.

Is there a version for peer-review?

If you would like to use the Engaging Classrooms Observations for the purpose of peer review, we have a link for that, too.

What are the benefits?

Faculty can establish a personalized baseline of their teaching style and practices once their class is recorded and coded. After a baseline is provided, our Associate Director for Assessment sends your results. Our Associate Director can also work with faculty to set pedagogical goals and direct them to the appropriate training offered through the Engaging Classrooms QEP.
