Although one might say that all protocols require skills in “observing” any piece of work or problem, NSRF observation protocols specifically offer opportunities for educators to learn by viewing their peers at work, by being viewed, and by having their environments viewed by others.
It is important to remember that these protocols require significant trust that the observation is for learning. They are not meant to be used to evaluate job performance.
