Explore how Collaborative Observation can help you develop your skills and confidence for teaching both in the classroom and online.
The workshop can be adapted for particular team needs, so let us know if you would like to arrange this as a Team Workshop.
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
I’d like to pick up new ideas from watching others teach using online technologies and tools.
I’d like some help to develop my own online teaching approach, and to help with some of the challenges I have faced.
I’ve got peer observation coming up – how can I get the most benefit from the experience?
Through this you will...

• discuss practicalities of undertaking observation in online contexts and classrooms

Collaborative Observation in the classroom or online is approached as a strategy for professional development. You explore your own development interests & plan approaches to peer observation to meet them.
The workshop & associated live observation provides the opportunity to focus on the implementation of particular learning & teaching methods & deepen your understanding of those approaches.
You explore how to plan the approach to peer observation so as to ensure it is a developmental experience for both observer and observee.
Engaging in peer observation and the associated dialogue with colleagues helps you to develop a sound evidence base for your learning & teaching practice.
