PEER OBSERVATION OF TEACHING
FORMATIVE FEEDBACK FORM
FORM 2
This form is to be used when one colleague observes another and the practitioner
observed would welcome some feedback on their teaching. This is a separate
function to the formal peer observation of teaching, which the department requests
for its records. For the formal peer observation, use Form (1). The same teaching
session can be observed with both purposes in mind, in which case both this Form (2)
and Form (1) may be used. Completion of Form (2) would proceed in stages, with
practitioner and observer filling in stages alternately, as indicated (and preferably
electronically), and may then be kept as the personal record of the practitioner and
observer.
