Project Details

A two-year project, being undertaken by Victoria University of Wellington, to examine the impact the Teaching and Learning Circles (TLC) initiative has on organisational teaching culture.

Aims:

The main aim of the project is to explore the influence of a peer observation of teaching initiative, the ‘Teaching and Learning Circles’ (TLCs), on teaching culture/s and student learning.

Methodology:

The project methodology involves:

  • rolling out the TLC concept across interested Schools in three different Faculties, with the aim of having at least 10 functioning TLCs, with four members in each TLC
  • TLC participants completing a pre- and post-programme questionnaire, being interviewed when their TLC finishes, and then again up to six months after the programme.

Research question:

  • To what extent, or in what ways, does the Teaching and Learning Circles initiative influence teaching culture/s?
