What is an MAT?

An MAT is an informal, confidential, and off-the-record way for you to get constructive student feedback on student learning and your teaching. MATs are offered midway through a term to provide time to make mid-stream adjustments or improvements based on student input. This semester, MATs will be conducted via Zoom at either the beginning or end of your scheduled class time.

To schedule an MAT for your course, please complete the online MAT request form (below) by October 2, 2020, at 8 p.m. Note that MATs are limited to one class section per instructor each semester. CAE Program Assistant Cynthia Baena-Delventhal will follow up with you to schedule 
  1. The 20-minute Zoom session where a CAE liaison will collect data from your students, and 
  2. a debrief conversation with the CAE liaison outside of class.
