Abstract

The study aimed at examining the views of the student-teachers and supervisors on the Onsite Peer Observation (OPO) component of the Postgraduate Diploma in Education Programme (PgD in Ed) offered by the Department of Education Studies of Hong Kong Baptist University. A total of 122 students participated in the study by completing a self-administered questionnaire. Interviews were conducted with 30 of these participating students and with ten instructors selected at random. Results indicated the OPO had played an important role in enhancing student-teachers’ reflection on their teaching and studies. Based on the results, three main recommendations were made to further enhance student learning.
