Techer student - observation - expression
 
Hello to everyone from sunny Sweden.
 
Can you help me with an expression, please?
 
What is the appropriate expression in English for "observe the lessons"? I mean when a teacher/ teacher student participates in lessons in reguard to observe the lessons, teacher ´s work/students ´ work to gain experience. In swedish we say "auskultera".
 
Thank you very much in advance.
 
Have a nice day.

Maybe you are referring to "student-teaching"..  A student-teacher observes classes as part of his/her teaching training.
Let´s see what the rest of the people say!
Enjoy your sunny day!

Hi, the translation I got is, "sit in on a class as a student teacher".  So to observe a teacher’s class / lesson would be correct.

Enjoy.

When I was working toward CELTA, we called that "lesson observation".

Hi yanroko1,

If the student-teacher only observes a lesson delivered by another teacher, and take notes about what happens around: teacher ´s instructions and demonstrations, and students ´ reactions. It is called - as we studied it - "Passive Observation | Passive Observer"

If the student-teacher plans, delivers the lesson and takes notes during the lesson it would be "Active Observation | Active Observer"

There is another type where the student-teacher prepares the lesson plan and another teacher will deliver it for the student-teacher to take notes. However, I can ´t remember what it is called.

The correct term is a ´lesson observation ´, more commonly called obs for short.

I should also say that CPD here in the Uk calls for us to have obs all of the time. So, students, teachers, whatever, whoever observing would still be a lesson observation. Check Stephen Reece and Ian Walker for a British bible on teaching and learning.
