Peer observations offer the opportunity for faculty to assess their teaching with an observer who is also a colleague. Peer observations can encourage reflection, enhance confidence, and improve communication for both the observer and the faculty being observed. They are also a professional development tool which can help faculty build their teaching portfolios. This workshop will explore the process of conducting a peer observation.
