The following guides are used at NCCC to support online course observations, and for observing the online portion of hybrid and blended courses. This guide was adopted by the NCCC Online Learning and Teaching Council “OLTAC.” This advisory council adapted the Penn State Peer Review Course Observation Process and Guide to meet our needs. Adaptions include our process and resources at NCCC.
This guide makes use of the “Seven Principles for Good Practice in Higher Education.” The guide is also an excellent self-evaluation tool to assess your online teaching practices.
