Feedback on your teaching
Formative Feedback from Peers for Professional Development
To support tutors through their peer observations, the peer observation is a guided process, supported by both written resources and by the Tutor Development Program sessions about observing others and giving feedback.
The peer observation is intended to be completed in the spirit of collegiality and to support tutor development. Peer observation is also confidential between the tutor and the person providing feedback.
Tutors will be paid for the hour spent observing another tutor colleague, plus another hour for the time taken meeting with your colleague before and after the observation - 3 hours paid in total for peer observation.
Summative Feedback from Students for evidence of effectiveness of tutoring (eg. for contract renewal)
The Institute of Teaching and Learning (ITL) provides valuable information on how to obtain feedback on your teaching. There is a specific tutor teaching form for you to request. Only you will receive the results of this feedback and you can decide with whom to share the feedback (if anyone).
To order the survey forms, go to the ITL website, enter your details, and then choose which questionnaire you would like your students to complete. We strongly suggest ordering the Teaching in Tutorials, numerical questionnaire with scannable forms. These are the only forms that are acceptable for the Dean's Citation for Tutoring Awards.
Note: Only you can order these forms (they will not be ordered for you).
