There are many Communities of Practice related to teaching and learning at Kalamazoo College. The Teaching Commons encourages all faculty to be part of these communities.

Teaching and Learning Workshop

The Teaching and Learning Workshop is an introduction to teaching at Kalamazoo College for all new faculty colleagues. New faculty members work with experienced K faculty to explore teaching and learning at K. The workshop is focused around three microteaching sessions.

Course Visit Cohort

The Course Visit Cohort connects faculty members who wish to visit each other’s classrooms and meet to discuss their experiences. The goal of the community of practice is not to “assess” or “provide feedback,” rather the goal is to create a community centered around teaching and learning.
