Peer Observation Scheme for Lecturers

Lecturing is quite an individual job, what happens in the classroom, stays in the classroom. To improve your teaching you could either follow a programme or ask for educational advice. Or you could ask a fellow lecturer to observe your teaching, for example with help of CAT’s new Peer Tutoring Scheme.

In the Peer Observation Scheme, two lecturers observe each other’s teaching practice. The scheme is intended for lecturers to learn from both observing and being observed. The participants of the scheme will be guided on observing as well as how to handle received feedback for the quality of education. Feedback, discussion and reflection on these observations aim for improving student learning. With this scheme we facilitate the peer observation process by connecting and training lectures to observe each other, give and receive feedback and to reflect on their teaching skills. The scheme is meant for all lecturers; starting as well as (more) experienced lecturers. You can now subscribe for the scheme!

The scheme takes place in period 3 and 4 of 2019-2020, between 18 February and 12 May.

The deadline for subscribing for this cohort is 1 February 2020.

More information and subscription via the Centre for Academic Teaching 

Please note, the programme is only for UU-teachers.
