Meaningful Peer Observation of Fellow Faculty Members

Peer observation across the University varies widely, depending on the department. Observers aren’t always confident in their role, and those being observed are often nervous or unsure of what to expect. This workshop will give tips to all parties involved to help build confidence and transparency in the process.Whether you’re being observed or observing faculty peers, the observations should be a transparent and meaningful opportunity for all parties involved. Drawing on multiple resources, this workshop will give a model for meaningful peer observation and give tips to both the observer and those being observed. Discussion on what peer observation looks like at U-Indy and elsewhere will take place and what weight peer observation might carry in the evaluation of faculty teaching.
