The post-observation meeting is the most important discussion in this process. This meeting:
- allows you to gain feedback from your observer
- discussion of what occured in your class
- enables your observer to explain what they noticed you and your students doing
- allows you to question and explain any things that need elaboration
Ideally this meeting is soon but not imediately after class. Some time for reflection is valuable but you don't want to forget details of the class.
Please register your peer observation activity. Registering your activity will help inform support and enhancements to peer observation at UQ.
Phil Race provides tips for the post-meeting:
- Value feedback from your colleagues.
- Accept observation as normal.
- New colleagues are best treated gently.
- Remind yourself that in normal teaching, students do see you, but
don’t really observe you.
- Try to give three positives for every one ‘could do better’.
- When you are observed, treat it as free consultancy.
- Be prepared to receive positive feedback.
- Regard any criticism as useful feedback.
- Practise eliciting feedback.
