A guide to conducting classroom observations 5-day
Alpha School of English is proud to deliver its flagship course in the field of classroom observations, having been involved in an Erasmus project centred around this area of academic progression. During this process our team of teaching professionals have: produced both digital and paper copies of observation proformas and associated handbooks, conducted multilingual observations; taught and observed virtual and face-to-face lessons; and shared excellent practice with colleagues from across Europe. Applying for this course will enable you to take advantage of our expertise so that you can use this knowledge to design and implement observational systems to assess and provide supportive, constructive feedback to teachers. Topics covered include observational methodology, peer observation, establishing goals & guidelines, reflective practice, and action plans.
Aimed at School Principals, Subject Department heads, teacher support/development staff, primary, secondary & tertiary-level teachers (all subjects).
Effective Lesson Observations, Feedback and Support
Effective Lesson Observations, Feedback, and Supportive Assessment are 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. This course will involve theoretical input and practical classroom observation sessions.
The broad topics covered in this course include:
- Why Observations?
- The Who, When, and What of Observations
- Offsite Training Day
- Goal Setting
- Presentations, Further CPD & Feedback
