Participation Form

Fill out this short form to express an interest in participating in the Cutting Edge RTOP Project.

We are seeking geoscience faculty willing to be observed or video-recorded in a range of geoscience courses across the country. A member of the research team will contact you to arrange to observe (or collect a video) of your class. In return you will receive your RTOP subscores and information about the range of scores on each subscale in the pool of classrooms we observe. We hope that it is an opportunity for you to learn something new about your teaching. Find out more details on the Participation page (opens in a new window).

Faculty selected as Observers are expected to participate in training sessions and observe at least 10 classes over the course of their participation. Trained observers are eligible for stipends upon completion of data submission for needed observations. Please use this space to tell us why you are interested in being a part of the Classroom Observation Project as an Observer.
