The process of observing teaching provides both the observee and the observer with the opportunity to learn from each other and to reflect on their teaching. It also provides an opportunity to disseminate good practice amongst colleagues by sharing thoughts on teaching practice and supporting each other’s development of teaching skills.

The following form, used on the CREATE scheme, can be used for teaching observation - it is mapped to the Activities of the UK Professional Standards Framework - the sector standard in teaching in Higher Education. This mapping supports those also seeking recognition for a category of HEA Fellowship.
