Peer review of educational practice is an umbrella term that refers to the use of a variety of tools and strategies that focus on a range of areas in educational practice. In each case the common element is review of educational practices that involves providing feedback to those involved in educational practices against standards of good practice, aimed to improve the quality of learning and teaching, courses and the student experience.
