Instructional Coaching/Peer Observation Introduction Session: The Process
We encourage faculty from across campus to become peer Instructional Coaches. Faculty who complete our five (5) step process will receive a certificate of completion. CeTEAL has developed a process and protocols to capture the best information from the initial meeting and classroom observation to writing the report and follow-up meeting. Participants receive a certificate of completion at the end of the 5-step process and will be considered a CCU Instructional Coach! This is an excellent college or university-wide service opportunity. As a result, instructional coaches will be more likely to improve their own teaching. When we improve our teaching, we improve student learning and retention, that is our focus!
Have you been asked to observe your colleagues in the classroom? Do you need to provide a peer observation as part of a promotion and tenure committee or mentoring committee? Would your department like to implement peer observation in a standardized format? Based on the faculty development literature, best practices, and in consultation with our advisory board, CeTEAL has developed a process and set of protocols to perform classroom observations. Our strength-based, instructional coaching process will help you set up a pre-observation meeting, perform a classroom observation, write a follow-up report, and conduct a follow-up meeting. We will share with you all of the necessary documentation to guide you through the process. This session is the first in the 5-step process to become an Instructional Coach at CCU.
