Oita JALT:

Teacher Awareness Through Peer Observation

Date: Saturday, January 15th, 2011 Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Speaker: Chrsitopher Stillwell

Oita JALT"s first event of 2011 will be a workshop by Christopher Stillwell from Sojo University, Kumamoto. Christopher will discuss teacher awareness through peer observation. More specifically, how teachers are typically isolated from one another in their classrooms, but are fortunate in that they have a valuable and free resource in their midst -- other teachers. This workshop will explore guidelines for tapping into this resource through peer observation and coaching. The workshop will also provide examples of how a voluntary peer mentoring program can create opportunities for teachers to benefit from the insights of peers while at the same time experiencing the challenges of giving and receiving feedback. This workshop should be of value to anyone interested in collaborative professional development, peer/teacher observation, and techniques for giving feedback effectively in all contexts of teaching and learning.
