As an institution that prides itself on having good and effective teachers, peer evaluations can support and grow a culture where we learn from each other and work together to improve ourselves in the classroom. Thus the recommendations below for peer evaluations work to support a conversation about teaching where a more senior member of the faculty might understand their role as a mentor and the faculty member being observed can see the observation as an opportunity for learning and improvement. Peer observations of teaching should support both formative and summative assessments of an individual’s teaching, while also building a more supportive and engaged community of faculty.
