University of Minnesota: Department of Mechanical Engineering


Every semester, mechanical engineering TAs have commitments that require them to invest in their professional development. These commitments, which need to be completed by the last day of classes, include:

  1. Peer Observation
  2. Continuing Education
Once BOTH of these commitments have been completed, submit the report below. Only one form needs to be submitted since it covers both commitments.

Reporting Form  

Commitment:  Have a peer observe your teaching. Report the date of observation and the name of the TA who observed you.

Be sure to read the observation instructions prior to observing. The worksheet is provided to help you take notes. Note that both your peer observation and continuing education must be completed prior to reporting it via the form listed above.
