The peer coaching program is an initiative of the Office of Faculty Development that provides faculty with opportunities to reconsider their teaching in a range of class environments. An NC State faculty member (scholar) participating in the program will work with a knowledgeable colleague (peer coach) through a three-step process of consultation, observation and debriefing structured around the needs of the scholar. This process is confidential and includes reciprocal classroom visits beginning with an opportunity for the scholar to visit the coach’s class and followed by the peer coach visiting the scholar’s class to provide feedback on his/her teaching process. Scholars and peer coaches would be partners in the effort to reorganize the scholar’s class.
Each peer coach can work with up to three scholars (or three reciprocal visits) over a twelve-month interval and would attend training and receive $1000 (non-stipend) in resources for instructional development or scholarship related to teaching and learning for his/her participation in the program. Coaches must work with a minimum of two individuals. If a coach has not been assigned two scholars within twelve months of becoming involved with the program, he or she will continue to remain in the pool of coaches until their commitment to coach two individuals has been fulfilled.
