Peer observation for teaching enhancement

Peer Observation of Teaching 

Pairs or groups of staff are encouraged to work together in networks to support each other to enhance their academic practice.  Peer Support for Teaching Enhancement acts as a collaborative, supportive and developmental process for colleagues to work on the enhancement of their students’ experience.  It aims to:

  • encourage and support colleagues to contribute to the development of excellent academic practice (DEAP);
  • promote opportunities for sharing and dissemination of excellent academic practice; and
  • foster the development of an academic community across our University.

Activities can range from more traditional peer observation processes to small network clusters of staff engaging in a mutually supportive activity which may focus on a particular theme or address a strategic development need. All approaches to teaching whether they are online, blended or face to face are suitable for consideration and enhancement.  Schools, Subject areas or Courses can decide how they implement the peer support process in their own context. This will be determined via their priorities, perceived needs and staff feedback. 

More details about best practice and examples of how peer support for teaching enhancement can be implemented are given in the documents below.  CLT can provide example forms as well as bespoke events to Schools to support the implementation of the scheme.
