21TRA042 How to Implement Teacher Peer Observation in a School

 

 

 

Peer observation is about teachers observing each others’ practice and learning from one another. It aims to support the sharing of best practice and build awareness about the impact of your own teaching.

Effective peer observation (including feedback and reflection):

• focuses on teachers' individual needs and gives an opportunity to learn from, and give feedback to peers
• is a core component of creating a professional community and building collective efficacy
• can help teachers continue to improve their practice in ways that better promote student learning
• is a developmental learning opportunity.

In this session Claire Kilroy (Deputy Principal of Coláiste Bhaile Chláir) will present to us on her experience in the promotion and development of the Teacher Peer Observation culture in her school and how it has benefitted staff and learners alike.
