Peer observation of teaching is part of our formal approach to enhancement and quality assurance.
We encourage all teaching staff to undertake peer observation of teaching at least once every two years.
In addition to student feedback on teaching, this provides valuable feedback from an experienced colleague about an individual’s strengths and potential areas for development in their academic teaching.
The School maintains a brief record that these observation and feedback opportunities have been taken up.
University guidelines on the peer observation of teaching are available from the Quality Unit website.
