Peer Observation

CTL operates a supportive peer observation system designed to help you discover and explore different approaches to teaching within your discipline, using the structured assistance of a trusted peer. Peer observation is a voluntary system of professional support that can help teachers at any stage in their career gain valuable insights about their teaching performance in a confidential, trusting and formative climate.

It simply involves inviting a colleague into a lecture or tutorial and asking them to give you their insights about the delivery of material, the student experience, and other important teaching related factors including clarity, pace, learning outcomes, ideas and suggestions.  The process has been adapted to align within the current delivery model for the Spring semester.
