Introduction to peer dialogue of teaching

  • What is peer dialogue on teaching?

Peer dialogue on teaching involves working with a colleague or a group of colleagues. You attend and observe each other’s teaching sessions or study online teaching activities/other resources. You discuss what’s going well, where improvements could be made and create a joint development action plan.

  • Why is it important?

Peer dialogue allows teachers to benefit from each other's knowledge and experiences, and promote excellence of teaching within departments.

The focus of peer dialogue is on the student experience and how learning can be promoted through developing fresh approaches to teaching.

Guidance on Peer Dialogue of teaching is available.
