Intended Audience Those interested or involved in, the development of online approaches to peer observation of teaching. Workshop Description Online peer observation is an emerging field which remains under-researched. It offers opportunities for part-time and associate lecturers to join in the life of the institution and overcome the potential for social isolation. It can be approached by individuals in many different ways, with many different outcomes. This workshop will present a model which will equip participants to make crucial decisions about their own institutional, or individual, peer observation practices. This workshop provides a new model of Teaching Observation with which to explore relevant issues and opportunities with fellow participants. At the same time, the facilitators will share the development of their practice, via online peer observation at University of Derby Online (Bowskill et al., 2017). Participant Engagement The workshop will contain a mixture of small group and whole-group discussions. Participants will evaluate their current practice and consider this alongside a new continuum model. They will locate their practice on the continuum and consider this alongside a case study of evolved practice. This mix of activities will provide a participative framework for the exploration of online peer observation as an emerging area of meaningful action and practice. Participant Outcomes • Participants will have a greater awareness of challenges, opportunities and current practice with regards to online peer observation. • Participants will have an opportunity to learn about online peer observation as a practice at the University of Derby Online (UDOL). • The workshop will generate multiple perspectives (and possibilities) for online peer observation, drawn from a variety of institutions around the world. • Individuals will be keen to explore their own peer observation practice in new ways.
