One of the pillars of the TP cycle is the feedback session, or post-observation conference, which typically involves the novice teacher interacting with a more experienced mentor, or supervisor. This dialogic encounter aims to identify good practices so that they can be replicated and developed, and also areas that need a specific focus for enhancement. This chapter assists the novice teacher in practical ways to make the most of these discussions, by being well prepared, by interacting in a robust way, and by planning and implementing change in future practice sessions.
