Open to: Invited participants only
In Part 2 of our Faculty Learning Program, sessions focus on peer observations to develop faculty’s skills in observing and providing feedback on teaching practice. The peer observations offer faculty: opportunity to use evidence to reflect on their practice with a colleague; develop knowledge and skills for observing and reflecting on practice; and an applied way to revisit their understanding of learning and teaching. Three online synchronous sessions introduce the peer observation protocol, and give faculty chance to experience discussing practice with videos from past TST fellows. The observation protocol is qualitative in nature, and structured in such a way to generate a safe space for giving and receiving feedback. Following the online sessions, faculty are all tasked to collect at least two videos of their teaching practice. Each faculty will have two peer observation feedback of their teaching. For these video observation sessions, the group meets online and/or in-person.
