Workshop:  “Evaluation Criteria for Classroom Observation”

This workshop was designed to determine the evaluation criteria for classroom observation. What made it remarkable was that all of our  instructors actively participated to come up with the most significant aspects in terms of preparation, the students, classroom management and effective teaching. The valuable ideas of our instructors which were gathered as a result of this workshop were taken into consideration during the observation process.
