Peering through the looking glass: Making sense of the observation process in HE

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchWeb publication/site

Abstract

This blog is inspired by two recent experiences. The first was attending Matt O’Leary’s recent seminar at Liverpool John Moores’ University on ‘Observing teaching and learning in higher education: Moving from the performative to the informative through peer collaboration’, while the second was reading Robert Douglas-Fairhurst’s atmospheric The Story of Alice: Lewis Carroll and the Secret History of Wonderland. While disparate in nature, both provided food for thought and a crossover of ideas that helped me to reflect on the nature of teaching.
