    A really interesting and helpful unit – it’s hard to choose just a few things as I’d like to someday give everything a go. However the standout things to try to remember for the future are for me:

    -suggesting a compare & contrast peer observation arrangement. I haven’t heard of this before but it makes complete sense to learn from how another teacher would approach the same task

    -experimenting with technology to ‘live stream’ observations. I think this would really help engage a group of observers (and thus help each of them developmentally) but think it would be important to remind observers not to go overboard on their comments/note-taking

    -watching the learners (and not just the teacher!) in an observation. It seems to me that if the learners are engaged and on task – that’s surely the best sign that a lesson is going well
