Principles on selection and development of quality teaching materials
Quality of teaching material
There is a system of regular lesson observation, in which, for example, co-ordinators or academic managers observe educators in turn, especially less experienced educators and the teaching material, and discuss the lesson with them afterwards.
The system includes a mix of these different types of lesson observations for different purposes:
There are clear criteria for lesson observations and feedback, which educators are informed about.
There are also opportunities and procedures for peer observation, i.e. teachers observing one another, less experienced teachers observing more experienced teachers, for awareness-raising and development purposes.
Areas of weakness in teaching material are identified and acted upon after observations, e.g. through in-service training, follow-up mentoring etc.
