Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching

Reflection and Observation of Practice Scheme

The Reflection and Observation of Practice Scheme (ROPS) has been created to support academic staff development in all aspects of learning, teaching and assessment at the University of South Wales.

The Scheme has been approved by the University Learning and Teaching Enhancement Committee and agreed by the academic trade union. It forms a key part of the way the University enhances learning, teaching and assessment in alignment with the Academic Plan. The scheme is a mandatory element of academic staff development that will be appropriately resourced by Faculties, and engaged with by all staff eligible to participate.

The outcomes of the scheme will be the identification and dissemination of good practice and planned staff development.

The ROPS Staff Handbook is available to download.

The following staff are trained ROPS observers.  Remember, it can be very beneficial to work with an Observer outside of your immediate subject area/school/faculty.
