CELT: Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching

Supporting teaching excellence and innovation across Bangor University

Enhance Your Teaching

Peer observation of teaching practice or learning support allows you to develop through self-reflection, share knowledge with colleagues and identify areas that need support. 

The scheme is designed to enable participants to reflect on teaching and learning practices with reference to the QAA Quality Code for Higher Education and the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education (UKPSF).

Bangor’s peer observation scheme is open to all staff who teach and/or support learning. It is expected that all academic staff with a teaching role will engage with the scheme once each academic year as part of a peer observation dyad or triad. This includes part-time lecturers and professional practitioners who regularly contribute to teaching. Postgraduate students who teach will be observed as part of their requirement to undertake School-specific training or the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PGCertTHE). External speakers will not be required to participate in the full scheme, but for those with a recurring contribution per academic year, module leaders should at the very least attend a session and provide verbal feedback.
