Effective Lesson Observations, Feedback and Support
Assessment is an integral part of the whole teaching and learning process and this applies as much to staff development as it does to student progress. In this week-long session managers and educators alike will develop their skills of evaluating their employees and peers, creating relevant documents to record observation data; giving useful written and oral feedback in a non-threatening, supportive manner and setting appropriate and challenging goals for the future. Throughout this course participants will also develop their language skills, gaining key vocabulary related to feedback.
