Peer Observation of Teaching – Faculty Development Workshop

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 11.16.38 AMIn post-secondary institutions, the thought of having a colleague observe and provide feedback on one’s teaching often conjures up dread, stress, or panic —and sometimes even cynicism.  But, peer review of teaching, when done well, has the potential to promote genuine professional growth for instructors.

In this session, we will explore what is meant by “peer observation of teaching,” examine two main models for peer review, and identify personal and institutional benefits for engaging in this practice.

Come and join us for this great open discussion.

Date: Thursday February 11th

Time: 12:00 -1:00

Location: JIBC New Westminster – Classroom NW122

Presenter: Isabeau Iqbal, PhD – Educational Developer. Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology, UBC
