Learning Peer Observation in Support of Effective Teaching-POSET

CPL logo                              

Observing a peer teacher, both to provide feedback and to learn from a colleague, is an effective process for improving one's teaching. Learning Peer Observation in Support of Effective Teaching (POSET) prepares educators to conduct effective, confidential, and formative peer observation of teaching.

POSET is a voluntary program for School of Medicine educators and may be useful for:

  • Providing an additional source of confidential feedback in addition to student feedback
  • Promoting the development of a collegial network of teaching mentors
  • Demonstrating and documenting excellence in teaching for the promotion dossier
  • Developing a community of learners and educators

Participation in POSET training and observations fulfills an expectation of CPL’s Achievement in Medical Education Program (AMEP) toward either a Foundational or Advanced Certificate.

All learners must first register and receive an access code for the course.  A fee is charged at the time of registration. UNM faculty and staff may apply tuition remission.  Students, residents, post-doctoral and GME fellows, and School of Medicine volunteer preceptors are sponsored and will not be required to make payment although they still must register.  For more information about the course, fees and the registration link, please go here.
