Academic Portfolio Workshop 2020

Peer observation of teaching is a supportive and developmental process to encourage dialogue about teaching among collaborative peers. Research suggests that the peer observation process can benefit the teaching of both observer and observed (Hendry & Oliver, 2012). Therefore, by participating in this workshop you will 1) increase your capacity to provide a valuable service to your peers and the university, and 2) engage in professional development to enhance your own teaching. Faculty who have achieved the rank of associate professor or instructor II are eligible.


When registering for the Summer 2020 Peer Observation of Teaching Workshop, I agree to the following:

1) Complete a set of readings on formative and summative approaches to peer observation in preparation for the workshop.

2) Participate in all three days of the workshop and complete a written peer observation report to be submitted before day 3.

3) Allow their names and a brief bio to be listed on the Lucas Center website as trained peer observers.

4) Conduct up to two observations per academic year during AY 2020-2021.
