UCLASSWhat is U-CLaSS?

The primary aim of U-CLaSS is to come together to talk about solutions and future action steps that can help to improve faculty-student relations here on the UW-Campus.

As part of the UW-TEaCH grant, U-CLaSS stands for Undergraduate Chat, Learn, and Share Space. U-CLaSS works to create a shared space for students and instructors to engage in pedagogical discussion about, and facilitate undergraduate research in, teaching and learning.

U-CLaSS chats are designed to give students the opportunity to talk with faculty about common issues, challenges and possibilities in teaching and learning. Chadbourne Residential CollegeWorking with Chadbourne Residential College (CRC) and the Center for the First Year Experience, the Teaching Academy seeks to facilitate discussions surrounding how to encourage effective and meaningful faculty-student interaction in and beyond the classroom. Development of U-CLaSS is facilitated by CRC student peer mentors, with faculty playing a listening role. Students are encouraged to share their thoughts on what good student-faculty interaction looks like, what enables it, and what hurdles or barriers exist. Peer mentors are also invited to join PFoT to sit in and provide feedback from a student perspective, as well as serve as panel participants at Teaching Academy events and the LEaP programs.
