CLIE Lesson Observations 2017-18

6 November 2017


The following observation cycles are planned to take place during this academic year:


The annual observations for the EAP team will begin after Reading Week and will follow the same procedures as in previous years.

Course Unit & Evening Course

There will be Course Unit Course observations and also Evening Course observations (previously known as mini-observations). Those for the Course Unit team will take place after Reading Week from 13 to 24 November 2017, and those for the Evening Course tutors will be from 5 to 16 February 2018. The focus of these observations will be discussed with the relevant course coordinators and their teams prior to the beginning of the observation cycle. The observation team will consist of Christine Hoffmann, Jane Skirving and Madeleine du Vivier.

Peer Dialogue Scheme

The CLIE Peer Dialogue Scheme (previously known as the Peer Observation Scheme) will take place from 29 January to 9 February 2018. The scheme remains essentially the same apart from two changes:

1. Tutors will meet before the observations to identify an area of focus that they would like to discuss after the observations have taken place.

2. Peer observation experience can form part of a tutor's appraisal meeting and discussion.

We hope that you find the observations useful and thought-provoking.
