Peer Observation of Teaching Program

This Teaching Academy program provides LCOM faculty with voluntary, confidential, and formative feedback on their teaching.

How does it work?
You will complete a brief intake form (see below) with details about the instructional activity you would like to have observed. Peer observations will be arranged by the Teaching Academy and conducted by Academy members.  Ahead of your scheduled session(s) you will receive a Peer Observation of Teaching Overview and Guide, a Form and Coaching Grid to be completed by your Peer Observer before, during, and after your scheduled sessions(s), and reference materials.

Observations and all documentation remain between you and your Peer Observer. Peer observation feedback can be included in annual reviews, Teaching Academy portfolios, and promotion dossiers – but that is entirely up to YOU!

Additional option
You can consider utilizing a peer review of selected teaching materials (e.g., syllabus, pre-work assignment, slides).

Are there any pre-requisites?
All Peer Observers are required to complete the Recognizing Bias (EverFi) Module training.

What do I need to do to sign up?
Please complete this brief Peer Observation of Teaching Intake Form to begin the process.
