Teachers as ObserversWorkshop

I think it’s true to say that most teachers don’t like being observed! They say they find it disruptive and they say it’s often unnecessarily negative – an error-spotting exercise by a senior who has had no training in the skills required.

For observation to have any use, it should be supportive and collaborative; this session will present a different view on how observation can take place setting parameters which will be agreed with the participants.

Observing is not simply ‘watching a lesson’, it involves a degree of trust and understanding between observer and observe as well as an atmosphere which is conducive to a useful exchange of ideas.
