Peer observations as currently practiced seldin form
Peer Observations as Currently Practiced (Seldin form)

  • Not returning reliable data for summative decision-making.

  • Not providing formative feedback that is valued by instructors.

  • Perceived as a burden.


Fetf approach to peer obs
FETF Approach to Peer Obs

  • Fewer peer observations with better results.

  • One complete peer observation per semester in years 2, 3, 4, and 5.

    • Pre-observation conference

    • 2 in-class observations of at least 75 minutes each

    • Post-observation conference

  • Observations over and above these (including in year 1) can be exclusively for formative purposes.

  • Narrative evaluation form

  • Training


Still to be resolved
Still to be resolved…

  • What role will evaluation of content play in peer observations?

  • Who will do the observations? From within or across departments?

  • How will the summative and formative purposes be integrated?

  • What will be the precise format of the instrument?

  • How will peer observation of online courses proceed?


Proposed instrument
Proposed instrument

  • 4 sections on two pages.

  • Picture each section taking up roughly a half page.

  • Instrument includes “markers” of effective instructional design and instructional development.

  • Not all markers of effective instruction will be present in any single class session.
