Faculty Hour SPRING 2020

Conducting Effective Peer Observations of Teaching

Peer observations of teaching are a standard requirement on the road to tenure because high-quality peer feedback can spur professional growth. But what goes into an effective peer observation? This session is designed for faculty who would like to invite peer observation and for those who conduct peer observations. It focuses on strategies for (1) initiating and conducting a peer observation and on (2) frameworks for providing and using feedback after an observation. Bring your questions about peer observation to this interactive session.

Date:  Wednesday, February 19th
Time: 12:10pm – 1:10pm
