Peer Observation of Teaching

Home / Faculty Professional Development / Peer Observation of Teaching


Peer observation is a collegial process of obtaining feedback from a tenured faculty colleague. Feedback provided is both formative assessments designed to improve once teaching skills and summative assessment designed to evaluate alignment with teaching standards for tenure and promotion. A list of Stockton tenured faculty specifically trained in peer observation is located at the bottom of this page.


Stockton Institute for the Peer Evaluation of Teaching (SIPET)

A colleague trained to observe and provide formative feedback on your teaching in both face-to-face and online classes will provide you with a summary of your strengths as an instructor and give you ideas for enhancing your practice going forward. These observations are confidential, and you may choose whether or not to use them in official evaluations of your performance.
