Peer Assisted Reflection & Development Program (PARD-P)

The Peer Assisted Reflection and Development Program is faculty-based professional development involving peer observation of teaching. The PARD-P model encourages teaching staff to take a critically reflective approach to their teaching practice for developmental purposes. Through a process of peer exchange, staff work toward enhancing the quality of their teaching practice.

The program is open to all teaching staff and caters for early, mid and experienced professional development needs. The PARD-P model is based on research into best practice in professional development and is guided by the principles of adult learning to maximise the efficacy of sustained, individual and community learning about teaching.
