Professor Lapping's experience of peer observation of teaching (Laurie Taylor THES , March 22) invites sympathy. In Poppleton's exercise, however, Derek abuses the process. Such "feedback" is counter-productive.
I hope Poppleton will respond to the emerging Quality Assurance Agency agenda (News, THES , March 22) by locating POT in a genuine process of peer review.
