Peer Observation

There is no official, or 'best', method for carrying out peer observations. You can select one of the four approaches suggested here, or you can use an alternative of your choice. Whichever you choose, you must submit a brief report to your School/Department peer observation co-ordinator. A standard form is provided for this.
