Teaching and learning can be observed in many different ways, including:
- Lesson Observations
- Learning Walks
- Work Scrutiny
Our CollegeiP solution enables colleges to utilise appraisals for their true purpose of improving staff. Observations can be recorded in a variety of monitoring forms. We appreciate that learning can be observed in many different ways and our software supports this. Video evidence of best practice can be uploaded, annotated and shared with staff.
CollegeiP enables observations to be carried out in real-time on a laptop or tablet, avoiding unnecessary repetition and increased workload. Comments and gradings are immediately saved avoiding 'lost' paper reports and insufficient feedback. Bespoke monitoring forms can be created that meet the individual needs of your college. In a practical sense, you can set the header fields, the questions, the summative judgements, guidance notes and the overall grading in your forms.
We have 50 predefined header fields to detail the context of the observation. For example: group, subject, group size, SEND and EAL. However, we are able to incorporate your own headings, performance criteria, judgements, guidance notes and colour schemes to fully meet your needs.
Following your observation activities, CollegeiP allows a range of detailed reports to be created.
Information can be collated and filtered; for example, departments, dates and type of staff member. This enables you to see a picture of where you are at any point in time. Transparency enables leaders to identify strengths and areas for improvement within teaching. Thereafter, priorities can be quickly established and time can be efficiently allocated to college improvement. You can export the data to MS Word, MS Excel and PDF files.
Carrying out any type of observation in CollegeiP is simple and intuitive. Paper is removed from this process and the results are automatically collated. The wealth of data generated can then be used to inform strategic decisions. This will allow you to enhance individual performance and drive college improvement.
