About the talk

As tools given to trainees when they watch peers or experienced teachers, observation tasks aim to develop awareness of teaching methods. However, we have been wondering whether they prove as effective as hoped for in prompting reflection. This talk will present findings of research using observation tasks with a different focus also discussing the principles of task design.
