Effective teaching can manifest itself in many different ways, some of which are best assessed by our peers. However, if peer observations aren’t planned and managed thoughtfully, they can do more harm than good. In this interactive session, we’ll consider some best practices for setting up and conducting peer observations and get some hands-on practice as observers with actual classroom scenarios. Participants will come away with a clear idea of the potential pitfalls of peer observation, how to avoid them, and how to excel in the process.
Presenter: Billie Bennett Franchini, Ph.D., is the Assistant Director of the Institute for Teaching, Learning and Academic Leadership (ITLAL) at the University at Albany, where she works with faculty members and graduate students on issues of teaching and career development. Dr. Franchini's visit was facilitated by the History Department in the College of Liberal Arts.
Hosted by Faculty Career Development Services.
