Peer Coaching in Higher Education describes a simple, five-step method for the improvement of teaching in colleges and universities. Professors and instructors in small groups, as departmental faculty, or as inter- and intra-departmental partners can increase faculty collegiality and improve their teaching techniques for increases in student learning. Gottesman explains the theory and practice of peer coaching, specifically describing its application among the faculty and students of five universities. She provides directions for a faculty conducting its own peer coaching seminar, including necessary hand-outs and examples. Actual peer coaching exchanges give faculty ideas about the extended applications of this process.

The purpose of peer coaching is to attain student success. My experience is that coaching builds a community of practice focused on learning and teaching. -- Pat Stelwagon, educational leadership faculty, San Jose State University
Peer coaching has proven to be an effective strategy for the retention and success of administrators at all levels. Serving as a coach has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional educational career. -- Robert Lowry, educational leadership faculty, San Jose State University, California Network of School Leadership Coaches
Faculty today who teach students from all over the world and from every local neighborhood, must have professional development that does not assume a traditional learner is sitting in those chairs or an old-style lecturer is behind the podium. Peer Coaching is a process uniquely designed to fit any situation and achieve any personal or professional goal. And it's neither expensive nor time-consuming. -- Kate O'Dell, professor emerita of teacher education, College of Education, University of Alaska, Anchorage
In Peer Coaching in Higher Education, Barbara Gottesman presents her concepts and techniques in the same clear, accessible manner she demonstrates in her workshops. Everything needed to implement a peer coaching program is here: the simple, five-step process for observing and coaching a peer, the rules for coaching that make feedback, coaching, and real-time coaching safe for colleagues, and more. I am delighted to recommend Gottesman's book and her workshop to college and university educators. -- Edward J. Baum, director, Center for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Education, fellow, The Honors College, and professor, Chemistry Depar
This book affords us an opportunity to apply the theoretical concepts we teach and learn and to build stronger and more valuable collegial relationships. It has truly enriched my professional life. -- Trudy McCulloch, California Network of School Leadership Coaches, Educational Leadership faculty, San Jose State University
