Peer Observation in Support of Effective Teaching


Peer Observation in Support of Effective Teaching (POSET) program is a voluntary

program for UNM SOM educators and may be useful for:

•           Providing an additional source of confidential feedback in addition to student feedback

•           Promoting the development of a collegial network of teaching mentors

•           Demonstrating and documenting excellence in teaching for the promotion dossier

•           Developing a community of learners and educators

Through confidential interaction with a trained observer, educators receive feedback on the strengths and challenges about the learning environment, learner engagement, session management, and teaching strategies based on a pre-negotiated, standardized assessment tool. Benefits for the peer observers include new perspectives and methods that they might want to incorporate into their own teaching practices.
