Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper reports the findings from an evaluation study to investigate participants’ experiences and views of three different forms of peer observation within a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice – observations from 1) an academic developer from the Academic Development Unit, 2) a class peer, and 3) a colleague from their own Subject or School. We explore how peer observation can be used strategically for developing and enhancing teaching at individual and institutional levels.
