Teaching Master Classes

Step into the classrooms of Western’s most respected and innovative instructors and observe them engaging with their undergraduate students, their course material, and their discipline. Following the in-class observation, join us to meet with these instructors and discuss the strategies they employ in their classrooms.

Each month we will feature one or two instructors from departments across campus who teach in varied classroom settings – large, small, upper year, survey, practical, theoretical. This is an excellent opportunity for you to benefit from the experience and insight of our most successful teachers. Limited space is available in each master class and registration is required.

Participation in a Teaching Master Class counts for one Future Professor Credit toward the Western Certificate in University Teaching and Learning.
