Multiple colleges at KSU have begun formally supporting the peer coaching process. This workshop is designed to support those efforts and expand participation across KSU. Peer coaching is a formative process conducted with another instructor to provide feedback about teaching in areas you have targeted for improvement in your classroom. It is specific, organized, constructive, collaborative, non-threatening, confidential, and focused on mutual benefits. The process generates valuable feedback on classroom performance, introduces participants to new educational practices, models the value of assessment to the learners in the classroom, and quickly propagates ‘best practices’ within a community of educators. In this workshop, participants will learn about successful peer coaching efforts from the literature, discuss the value of various steps in the peer coaching process, and practice providing peer coaching feedback for a case scenario and for the workshop context itself.
