Peer Observation of Teaching

Peer Observation of Teaching is part of the University of Liverpool’s quality enhancement process providing both the Observee and Observer with the opportunity to explore teaching practice and reflect on teaching methods in a collegial environment. Where appropriate, the opportunity to disseminate effective practice will be part of this process.

Under normal circumstances, teaching staff should be observed every two years. It is expected that all departments and schools across the University will engage with the process by implementing the The Peer Observation of Teaching policy. Implementation will generally be managed by a small Peer Observation Group or the Head of School/Department.

The list of staff in a School/Department who have completed the training and can act as Peer Observers can be obtained by emailing theacademy@liverpool.ac.uk. The email should be sent by the Head of School/Department or the member of staff who is organising peer observation in their area.

Two brief guides have been developed to provide further information about the process, these are available below:
