A group perspective
A new approach to peer observation, borne from medical rounds, is creating a more collegiate approach to the systematic development of working practices in our schools.
Many of us will be used to peer observation and the subsequent feedback. But trials of a new approach to changing and developing teaching practice could change our perception of the traditional observational model.
‘Learning Rounds’, championed by the Scottish Centre for Studies in School Administration (SCSSA) and the national CPD team, is a system of non-judgemental, evidence-based group observation which encourages those taking part to view their performance and approach from a new perspective. As a result, individuals, their colleagues, whole schools and even entire local authorities have changed and improved the way they work in the classroom.
