Case Title: 1) P2P as a Professional Learning Design_old

Element Title: Framing the P2P Process ( of 8)

Educators may feel isolated because when they do their most intricate and complex work they are often the only adult in the room.  A teacher's understanding of his or her effectiveness is primarily revealed in the work of students, but can also be revealed in other ways.  The process of peer-to-peer observation and feedback relieves isolation and offers a structured and professional way to understand effective teaching.

Reflections become richer and more productive through the lens of the Kentucky Framework for Teaching (KyFfT) and a partnership with a trained peer collaborator.  Strong collegial relationships form when educators share every day experiences.

Building those relationships are just as important as conducting the pre-conference. Both ideas are discussed and explored in this case.
