Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Project

This project provides support to schools, programs and departments of the Faculty of Health Sciences in developing and launching peer observation and coaching initiatives.

A tool kit has been developed to facilitate the launch of these initiatives by both large and small groups of teachers. Training sessions and materials to prepare teachers for the consultations are included, with workshops focused on setting up a program and training observers.

A new certificate program for observers is being created through the Program for Faculty Development (PFD).
