Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:01 Shall we? #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:01 @Shaunwilden Fire away #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:02 #eltchat is Observations and Feedback: what do you get out of being observed and what makes good or bad feedback?
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:03 @Shaunwilden Am here. Could you define the topiv, #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:04 @Shaunwilden Observations and feedback from whom? #eltchat
BobK99 4/16/2014 11:05 Here I am. Long time no #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:05 @hadalitim @eltchat I'm here :)#eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:05 @MarjorieRosenbe I assume it’s talking about all types #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:05 @MarjorieRosenbe @Shaunwilden Teacher/Observer? Teacher/Teacher? #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:05 @sandymillin nice to have you Sandy #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:05 @MarjorieRosenbe I think it was @Ashowski’s question. Maybe he can define it a bit more? #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:05 RT @Shaunwilden: Lunchtime #eltchat @12BST is Observations and Feedback: what do you get out of being observed and what makes good or bad f…
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:06 @aClilToClimb can you refrain from tweeting off topic during a chat please #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:06 @Shaunwilden Hi ShaunOk. All clear. #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:06 @sandymillin @MarjorieRosenbe @Ashowski Yes it was #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:06 @sandymillin @marjorierosenbe @Shaunwilden feedback from obs from Senior Academic staff #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:06 Why don’t we start with peer observations? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:07 RT @sandymillin: Why don’t we start with peer observations? #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:07 RT @Shaunwilden: @aClilToClimb can you refrain from tweeting off topic during a chat please #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:07 RT @sandymillin: Why don’t we start with peer observations? #eltchat Ok, let’s start there then though many schools don’t do them
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:07 To my experience the style of feedback varies from DoS to DoS as well other members of staff - you agree? #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:08 @sandymillin OK, so here's a qu: Are peer observations worth their while? #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:08 @Shaunwilden @sandymillin WHere I work they are less stressful, more interesting, but not regular as not mandatory generally #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:08 @shaunwilden @sandymillin why don't schools do them? #eltchat
BobK99 4/16/2014 11:08 I'll be lurking mostly in #eltchat. Limited exp (once) of ELT obs, and less limited pre-ELT - MFL
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:09 @Shaunwilden Or let’s follow @Ashowski since it was his question! #eltchat Feedback varies a lot - depends on personality/focus/experience
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:09 @Ashowski @sandymillin Yes :-) #eltchat
cbsiskin 4/16/2014 11:09 @Ashowski  Yes, style of feedback is at least partially a function of personality. #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:09 @Ashowski @sandymillin Absolutely! In some cases, they can help immensely #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:09 @BobK99 #eltchat Limited experience is still interesting. Is it sth you’d like to have done more of? What about videos?
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:09 #eltchat Are we starting now !!
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:09 @Ashowski @sandymillin @Shaunwilden  Have never had this. Was set up once but the lang coord decided against it. #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:10 @marjorierosenbe @sandymillin  @shaunwilden You've never been observed by your DoS? #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:10 @MarjorieRosenbe You’ve never had feedback on an obs from senior staff? #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:10 @Shaunwilden @sandymillin Yeah, the worst thing is that most schools can't see the potential of peer observation !! #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:10 @ayatawel Yes Ayat, Welcome #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:10 So, we agree it depends on personality a bit, what elements go into producing a good/bad feedback session? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:10 @ayatawel Yes though they are a difficult thing to implement for many reasons #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:11 Interesting fb comes from sts who observe my classes and point out things I do automatically and don't notice. Very helpful.  #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:11 #eltchat I believe peer observ is one of the best ways of PD
languageeteach 4/16/2014 11:11 @Shaunwilden @sandymillin Successful obs depends on your attitude towards feedback - buckets, tumblers or thimbles #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:11 @Ashowski Surely it starts way before the fbk session?  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:11 @sandymillin Aldo haven't experienced this, only from trainees. #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:11 @Shaunwilden @ayatawel Peer ons always sth I want to do, but so hard to find the time. Haven’t done one for a LONG time. #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:12 @Shaunwilden @ayatawel But I learn so much from peer ons - was where I learnt the most in my first job #eltchat Steal activities, etc
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:12 Hello all sorry am late will follow as best as I can as not feeling too great today #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:12 @Shaunwilden If we change our perspective , it won't be difficult #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:12 Wondering if or how this applies to freelancers  #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:12 @Ashowski #eltchat For good feedback on obs, you need to listen to the observed T. How do they feel it went? Guide, lead, don’t tell.
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:12 RT @sandymillin: @Shaunwilden @ayatawel But I learn so much from peer ons - was where I learnt the most in my first job #eltchat Steal acti…
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:13 @Ashowski Well fbk is surely determined by the agenda for the observation in the first place  #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:13 @languageeteach @shaunwilden @sandymillin It can be a negative experience, but maybe there's a recommended structure? #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:13 @Ashowski #eltchat need to understand that not every T teaches in the same way, and that it’s their lesson, not yours
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:13 @sandymillin @Shaunwilden @ayatawel Do you think that peer observation should always have a focus and feedback? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:13 @MarjorieRosenbe Observations in general or peer?  #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:13 @Shaunwilden @12Bst Observation should be both reflective and developmental - big focus on next steps and how to achieve them. #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:13 @sandymillin Nope. Have also never had a DOS. #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:14 @sandymillin @Shaunwilden Agree, I'm lucky 2 have joined a new work place and it's one of the requirements for first few months #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:14 @sandymillin My DoS gets us (Senior Ts) to go through every recorded element of the lesson, describing it and then say what's wrong #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:14 @sandymillin @Shaunwilden @ayatawel Me too! And a lot less stressful than formal observations #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:14 @Shaunwilden @12Bst observations should be positive, consistent and NOT SCARY! #eltchat
ditaphillips 4/16/2014 11:14 @sandymillin Experienced this a few times, teachers had to push for it, results positive, created good buzz in the staffroom #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:14 @sandymillin helping Ts to discover what went wrong will probably be better but I've had Ts say they just want to know the problem #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:15 @sandymillin @Ashowski Soynda like a good way to do it. Have observed trainess and agree they need guidance. #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:15 @HadaLitim Yes, this can guarantee a good output !! #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:15 @ChrisOzog @sandymillin @Shaunwilden @ayatawel That sounds ideal and makes a lot more sense. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:15 RT @Marisa_C: We all benefit from observing others but question is about how WE beneftit by getting observed; what's the best FB  #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:15 We all benefit from observing others but   @Ashowski 's Q is about how WE beneftit by getting observed and what's the best FB #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:15 @sandymillin I agree! In fact I like it when I see things delivered in a totally different way #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:15 sorry i didn't use hashtag #eltchat - am here but not fulle there :-D
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:16 @sandymillin was recently thinking about getting more advanced Ts to explain why they did stuff in the way they did #delta #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:16 @SLT_Kat @Shaunwilden @12Bst But for some Ts they are ALWAYS scary! #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:16 @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C For me was positive aspects if classroom management. Made me conscious of it. #eltchat
languageeteach 4/16/2014 11:17 @sandymillin Useful if the observer looks out for something specific, e.g. use of technology #eltchat
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:17 @Ashowski @sandymillin Interesting idea. A 'lesson report' swap shop could be organised, like a community of practice in a sense. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:17 RT @Marisa_C: sorry i didn't use hashtag #eltchat - am here but not fulle there :-D - So normal then :-)
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:17 RT @languageeteach: @sandymillin Useful if the observer looks out for something specific, e.g. use of technology #eltchat

MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:17 @Shaunwilden Sorry, don't get the question.  #eltchat
cbsiskin 4/16/2014 11:17 @ayatawel @Shaunwilden @sandymillin Sounds like some schools are using observation just as evaluation then. :-(   #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:17 @Marisa_C @Ashowski I think that the obs must be properly set with pre-obs meetings/chats betwn T and Obsr #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:17 @Shaunwilden @Marisa_C Ultimately, we do it for the students.  We need to ensure the BEST for them.  They are the future #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:18 @cbsiskin @ayatawel @sandymillin I think thats quite common place  #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:18 So far: useful, peer, scary, goals for obs. Maybe good structure for f/d would be 3 goals and then discuss how well achieved? #eltchat
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:18 @Shaunwilden @cbsiskin @ayatawel @sandymillin And shameful! #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:18 @languageeteach @sandymillin So we can ask observer to look out for specific areas in peer observation #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:18 RT @Marisa_C: @languageeteach @sandymillin So we can ask observer to look out for specific areas in peer observation #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:18 @hadalitim @marisa_c I've never heard of a pre-ob meeting - could be an interesting idea! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:19 @SLT_Kat Agreed but therefore is observation about whether we are actually doing that or not?  #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:19 @cbsiskin @ayatawel @Shaunwilden @sandymillin There are various types of obs, so perhaps some schools don't always get that #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:19 #eltchat if we're ok about it, still how peers feel about it is an issue to consider
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:19 @Ashowski @hadalitim @marisa_c Surely a must for a productive observation?  #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:19 @Ashowski @hadalitim it's normal practice - often referred to as the 'pre-conference' meeting in teflese #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:19 I tend to get direct feedback from clients and if they are not happy they stop. #eltchat They also say what they like about lessons.
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:19 RT @ditaphillips: @Marisa_C @Ashowski Usually you know what you want people to observe you for, tell them! #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:19 RT @Marisa_C: @Ashowski @hadalitim it's normal practice - often referred to as the 'pre-conference' meeting in teflese #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:20 @Ashowski @Marisa_C We always try and have them where I work. Makes for a much more fulfilling obs to me #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:20 @HadaLitim @Shaunwilden @12Bst I know, I get that. Think building up a developmental relationship and experience takes the fear out.#eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:20 @marisa_c @hadalitim I think my DoS will reject the idea. Any writing on it on the net you know of? #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:20 @MarjorieRosenbe but clients may go for things not linked to ur performance but to your goals #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:20 RT @ayatawel: @sandymillin @Shaunwilden Agree, I'm lucky 2 have joined a new work place and it's one of the requirements for first few mont…
BobK99 4/16/2014 11:20 RT @Ashowski @sandymillin ...go through every ... the lesson, describing it and then say what's wrong #eltchat ?! Not what's right?
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:20 @cbsiskin It's used as part of teacher training and PD.#eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:20 @Ashowski That sounds pretty traumatic (describing everything that’s wrong!) Observations need a particular focus #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:20 @Ashowski @Marisa_C Is there not a standard procedure for observations where you work? #eltchat
ditaphillips 4/16/2014 11:20 @MarjorieRosenbe As a freelancer, have you missed being observed? #eltchat

Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:21 @Ashowski not handy - in most T-ED books and related lit #eltchat
languageeteach 4/16/2014 11:21 @Marisa_C @sandymillin Yes and then give developmental feedback. Useful for teachers wishing to experiment with new approaches. #eltchat
pysproblem81 4/16/2014 11:21 What do people think of unannounced observations and 'learning walks' http://t.co/xateF15NBf - becoming more common in UK #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:21 @SLT_Kat @Shaunwilden @12Bst Totally #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:21 @bobk99 @sandymillin I also feel this isn't the correct procedure but he's  boss not me - why so interested in this discussion :) #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:21 @Marisa_C Can you give example? #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:21 RT @sandymillin: @Ashowski That sounds pretty traumatic (describing everything that’s wrong!) Observations need a particular focus #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:21 RT @SLT_Kat: @Shaunwilden @12Bst observations should be positive, consistent and NOT SCARY! #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:22 @hadalitim @marisa_c there is a standard procedure but it doesn't follow what's being described here. #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:22 @languageeteach @sandymillin That's the idea - we have a collection of obs checklists & Ts choose  or make one to give a colleague #eltchat
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:22 What about 'unobserved observation', with pre-conference meeting and then feedback being a discussion between teacher&'observer' #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:22 @sandymillin @Ashowski And when it's agreed and understood prior to the obs it's even better )) #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:22 @sandymillin @cecielt was that this year? I must check that out - on the iatefl website, right/ #eltchat
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:22 @Marisa_C @languageeteach @sandymillin Nice idea to have a bank of tasks - helps with standardisation too, if this is a convern #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:22 @Shaunwilden Its about checking if that is the experience for those students and what can be done to make even better...  #eltchat

sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:25 @ditaphillips @MarjorieRosenbe And have you ever done anything like video/audio observations of yourself? #eltchat Really helped me!
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:25 @Ashowski @chrisozog Sounds like a Mario Rinvolucri idea to me - T narrates lesson to 'observer' & intense Q & A relveals issues #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:25 @pysproblem81 we have 'drop-ins' at IH Torun but teachers don't like them #eltchat
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:25 @Ashowski Exactly. Used for development of the teacher, so they can focus on a point without the pressure of observer in the room #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:25 @Ashowski @pysproblem81 Again that depends on the purpose of them  #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:25 @chrisozog I like this idea very much - I think my DoS would find flaws in it but it sounds like it could be beneficial #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:25 @ChrisOzog Really liked that idea when I first heard about it from you at #ihdos14 - still haven’t tried it though! #eltchat Time...
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:25 @Marisa_C @Ashowski Not sure if it's Mario or not, but it needs a pre-class meeting and then feedback focused on the points raised #eltchat

ditaphillips 4/16/2014 11:26 @Marisa_C @ayatawel No one way. Depends on expectations and reasons for the obs. Generally positive, motivating, thoughtprovoking #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:26 @Ashowski @pysproblem81 I don't like them either! Good job we don't have them where I work #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:26 @ChrisOzog @Ashowski I know it's a Mario because I experience it in one of his T obs workshops #eltchat
ChrisOzog 4/16/2014 11:27 @Ashowski A DoS will always find a flaw... but we teacher trainers won't... Ok, I won't. Try it out. Good to encourage reflection #eltchat
pysproblem81 4/16/2014 11:27 @Shaunwilden @Ashowski yes - is it about development or monitoring?.... or 'Catching-out' #eltchat

ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:28 @Shaunwilden It's not all the time aim, but can be an asset esp 4 new teachers #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:28 I have been experimenting with letting T read my lesson narrative/field notes to suggest OMIT-ADD-CHANGE points #eltchat works well
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:28 @pysproblem81 @Ashowski they also work well in inspection circumstances to get snapshot  #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:28 @ChrisOzog @HadaLitim interesting - lots now do drop in and it is about how to respond to what observed esp if development required #eltchat

HairyChef 4/16/2014 11:29 Hi all. I really liked Cecilia's idea of making obs > 1 stand alone lesson #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:29 @ChrisOzog Nope. Suggesting I need to be reminded constantly to do sth if people ever expect me to do it, not just add to list! ;) #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:30 @Shaunwilden I call it "Marisa, the human Video" my trainees laugh and it kind of makes the experience less frightening #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:30 RT @pysproblem81: @Shaunwilden @Ashowski yes - is it about development or monitoring?.... or 'Catching-out' #eltchat
pysproblem81 4/16/2014 11:30 @languageeteach - where I work many (announced) observations carried out by people from different subject areas - raises concerns #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:30 @Shaunwilden but field notes must be non-judgmental and only record facts - sometimes quite hard for observer :-D #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:31 @chrisozog @ihdubai yeah been living here for a few years now. Your roots from Poland? How is it at IH Dubai - awesome? rich? #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:31 The British Council CPD framework can be useful for deciding goals for obs, depending on Ts' experience. http://t.co/yD9PjnTWLM #eltchat
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:31 @Marisa_C the best way is to choose a focus that helps each teacher acc to her needs #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:31 @HadaLitim @pysproblem81 @Ashowski Sadly I do know of a school that had CCTV for that purpose #eltchat

Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:31 @EdLaur @sandymillin Yes! Loads! I feel this is when I started to really improvie as a teacher - by observing self on video #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:31 @EdLaur I shared clips from the videos on my blog too so others can use them for obs http://t.co/zutrXdbB98 #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:32 So has anyone ever received/given bad feedback session? what made it bad? #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:32 @pysproblem81 @languageeteach Could it be because the procedure needs to be reviewed? #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:32 @MarjorieRosenbe Haven't done this in a long time - getting the equipment where I work is complicated and we have short breaks. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 11:32 @Marisa_C Yeah good point,thats hard as your teaching at the same time and so ‘emotional’  #eltchat
languageeteach 4/16/2014 11:32 @pysproblem81 We have 'Prfofesional Learning Advisors', i.e. we don't know what to do with you so you can observe! #eltchat

sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:33 @Shaunwilden @HadaLitim @pysproblem81 @Ashowski There’s a school here with CCTV in every room, and not for obs purposes! #eltchat Very sad
pysproblem81 4/16/2014 11:33 @HadaLitim @languageeteach I think the aim is for neutrality - but I'm not sure how 'deep' judgements can be #eltchat

sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:36 @Ashowski The most pointless feedback session I ever got was “That was great, nothing to change” #eltchat Not useful/true at all! But nice
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:36 @ayatawel @Marisa_C @EdLaur @sandymillin Have been vidoed for presentations - also helpful. #eltchat but depends if you feel comfortable.
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:36 @MarjorieRosenbe Which equipment? I just used my camera/phone. Doesn’t have to be for a whole lesson. Even 5/10 mins is useful. #eltchat

MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:37 @Ashowski Years ago teaching music in inner city school. Supervisor said kids sang too loud. #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:37 @ayatawel @Marisa_C @EdLaur @sandymillin Most won't! So  raises the question of to what extent should the obsr take that into cons #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:37 @sandymillin so that's quite a positive experience (no negativity) but useless indeed #eltchat

sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:37 @MarjorieRosenbe Noticed a lot of tics I have - move around all the time, pick up/put down pens etc #eltchat Also ask ‘ok’ a lot!

MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:39 @sandymillin True - we also tend to look at one side of room more than other. I try to be aware of this. #eltchat
Ashowski 4/16/2014 11:39 @marjorierosenbe @sandymillin I don't think every thing needs to be commented on - just areas for focus - maybe 3 goals per obs? #eltchat

ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:44 #eltchat did we have another focus for the chat other than peer obs !
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:44 @HairyChef Periods of intensive observations sound amazing in theory, but a bit of a logistical nightmare for the timetable! #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:45 @HairyChef That’s why people learn so much during a face-to-face Delta course - they’re doing a lot of observation in a short time #eltchat
HairyChef 4/16/2014 11:45 @EdLaur agreed! I've hear horror stories of mismanaged obs. Building on positives is an absolute #eltchat

HairyChef 4/16/2014 11:46 @sandymillin this kind of thing allows teachers to follow "threads" or "themes" between teachers/teaching styles #eltchat
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:47 What was the best feedback you ever had and why? #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:47 @HairyChef Very true - what @CeciELT was saying about it being more useful to observe one peer many times, than many peers once #eltchat

MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 11:48 @Marisa_C From a trainee who liked the way I brought latecomers into the lesson with no fuss. #eltchat

Marisa_C 4/16/2014 11:57 @ditaphillips @MarjorieRosenbe @sandymillin this is common as experience - DELTA tutors are trained observers #ELTchat ususally
ayatawel 4/16/2014 11:57 #eltchat  Thank you everyone for your ideas .. will have to go now !! CU
HairyChef 4/16/2014 11:57 @EdLaur @sandymillin observers really need to take the view of "ongoing" PD, not stand-alone lessons/observations #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:57 @Ashowski @ELTchat @Marisa_C That's great! #eltchat
sandymillin 4/16/2014 11:57 Great to be back. See you again soon (can’t make late time!) #eltchat
languageeteach 4/16/2014 11:58 @sandymillin Comments on the content rather than my performance have been useful. I started to adopt a more critical view. #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:58 @ayatawel Thanks Ayat Caht soon #eltchat
SLT_Kat 4/16/2014 11:58 Brilliant #eltchat today!!

BobK99 4/16/2014 11:58 RT @Marisa_C Do you recall any traumatic feedback? > How could I ever forget: "I'll never let you loose on my class again" #eltchat #pgce
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 11:59 @HairyChef @EdLaur @sandymillin It really depends on the purpose of the obs though #eltchat

ditaphillips 4/16/2014 12:00 @Marisa_C terrified I might deliver one to my trainees unintentionally #eltchat
HairyChef 4/16/2014 12:00 @HadaLitim @EdLaur @sandymillin yes, ultimately needs guided by preob consultation of some sort, and then by follow up/sugges'n  #eltchat

Marisa_C 4/16/2014 12:01 @EdLaur Too true - incidentally same person was a brilliant teacher - being a great T doth not a good trainer maike #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 12:01 @EdLaur @Marisa_C Used to be painful! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 12:01 @fionamau Only do it once a week now we alternate times so next week it’s the evening  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 4/16/2014 12:01 @ditaphillips @Marisa_C But taking part in the chats make us more aware. #eltchat Just got email from trainee.

Shaunwilden 4/16/2014 12:04 @fionamau Was on observation  #eltchat
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 12:04 RT @MarjorieRosenbe: @ditaphillips @Marisa_C But taking part in the chats make us more aware. #eltchat Just got email from trainee.
HairyChef 4/16/2014 12:04 @EdLaur @sandymillin perhaps annonymous common "threads" from "rounds" or periods of obs need to be shared with whole departments? #eltchat
BobK99 4/16/2014 12:04 @fionamau #eltchat Only once a week, alt. am/pm. So next is next week later.
Marisa_C 4/16/2014 12:04 @fionamau @Shaunwilden We talked about observation and good ways of giving feedback #eltchat
getgreatenglish 4/16/2014 12:05 RT @SayHowDoYouDo: The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert - this pretty much sums up the strangeness of English. #engchat …
HadaLitim 4/16/2014 12:06 @Marisa_C @Ashowski Thanks - good you made it Marisa. See, you couldn't resist )) Get well soon. Off to work now. #eltchat
