  • Instructor Observation Process

    The following process outlines a consistent method to document classroom observations and provide feedback to individual instructors. The observation process is designed to function within the faculty development process. Observation sessions can be conducted by the Program Director or as part of a peer to peer feedback and development program.

    1. Schedule time to observe an instructor in the classroom or lab setting. Notifying the instructor is not necessary other than to determine a time that would yield valuable information.

    2. Observe the class/lab/scenario and make notes about specific observations. Observations to consider include:

    a. Instructor preparation b. Instructor interaction with students c. Classroom management d. Mentoring of students e. Instructor helpfulness f. Presentation style

    3. Complete the Instructor Classroom Observation form. a. Make comments and recommendations based on specific observations in each section of the

    document, particularly if the rating was something other than a three. b. The overall comments section should reflect a summary of comments throughout without

    being repetitive. c. The opportunities for instructor development/action plan section should include the following

    parameters: i. Specific ii. Measurable iii. Achievable iv. Realistic v. Time-bound

    d. Items in the opportunities for instructor development/action plan section should contain the following:

    i. Instructor development area of concentration ii. Developmental opportunity iii. Resource for development (texts, articles, online resources) iv. Time frame for opportunity v. Follow-up instructions

    e. Leave the comments by instructor section blank for comments. 4. The Program Director schedules a time to meet with the instructor and review the observation

    document. 5. Provide specific feedback on the observations and recommendations. 6. Explain the opportunities for development and action plan(s) allowing for negotiation of objectives

    and timelines as necessary. 7. Provide necessary resources for achieving developmental goals. 8. Allow an opportunity for the instructor to write comments. 9. Sign and date the document (both observer and instructor). 10. Copy the document.

    a. Provide a copy to the instructor b. Place original in instructors file

    11. Follow-up on development/action plan as outlined in the observation document. a. Record results of follow-up b. Place recorded results in the instructors file
