Event description
Folio Workshop: Observation and Feedback - Focusing on What Matters

About this event

Too often, the observation process feels inauthentic for both school leaders and faculty and staff and exists more as a required “checkbox” exercise rather than as an opportunity for growth and collaboration. And yet, as a school leader committed to creating growth-oriented learning communities, you understand the potential for observation and targeted feedback to positively impact faculty and staff performance and support community morale. You also know that given all of the uncertainties surrounding next school year, it’s important to focus on what matters most - those aspects that will remain relevant in a physical, virtual, or hybrid school environment.

In this workshop, we’ll work together to:

  • review the fundamentals of effective observation, both in a physical and virtual environment;
  • think about how non-traditional observation methods (such as review of lesson plans, observation at a team planning meeting, and peer observation) can be used to strengthen and complement the traditional scheduled classroom observation;
  • brainstorm what this year’s observation protocol might look like and how we might shift our focus toward those enduring elements of effective teaching such as culture, preparation, and differentiation.
  • practice, through role play, conducting observations and giving helpful feedback to faculty and staff.
  • create and receive feedback on a draft framework for implementing a targeted observation and feedback approach that works in physical and virtual schooling environments.
