Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Program: September/October 2013
Do you want the see how award-winning lecturers and tutors deliver their classes? Would you like to get some peer feedback on how you teach? The FASS Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Program offers just such opportunities, and the second Program for 2013 is now open for registration.
The program gives you several options for reviewing and revitalizing your teaching practice. You will need to observe another staff member and be observed, but you can choose a combination of:
1. Peer Observation– you and a colleague can choose to cooperate to observe and providing feedback on each other’s teaching.
2. Observation of award-winners – you can also choose to observe past Teaching Award winners in action.
3. Observation by a mentor – if you prefer a neutral party, you can team up with a past award winner to observe your teaching.
The POT Module is recognized by FASS as training in Teaching and Learning and can be used for your AP&D, promotions applications, and in applications for Teaching Awards. It is also an approved activity to complete the ITL Principles and Practices program.
The program is open from September 13 - October 11, 2013.
Register for the full POT program via this link.
A full range of support materials will be made available to participants online. There will also be a face-to-face debriefing session on October 21.
