Developing Teaching Skills Through Teacher/Peer Observations: A Video


In teaching, we can always learn tricks and tips from colleagues. We can also learn what to avoid when we teach. By observing others, we have the time to think about the effect their actions have on learners, a luxury that we do not usually have in our own teaching practice. Here is a video that teaches us how to conduct effective peer observations by peer teacher learning walks. Find it at https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/the-learning-walk?utm_source=newsletter20180120/#

Content:  Lesson Objective
Collaboratively observe colleagues

Questions to Consider
What are the benefits of doing observations together?
Why is it helpful to observe with a focus?
How could you implement learning walks at your school?
