Peer Review of Educational Practice

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.

The common element is the review against standards of good practice with provision of feedback to those involved in educational practice.

Formative Peer Review is aimed at improving the quality of learning and teaching, course design and delivery, and the student experience.

Summative Peer Review can provide evidence of good educational practice for the benefit of staff seeking acknowledgment of their achievements for promotion. These reviews can include teaching performance reports, subject and course design/reviews (internal and external accreditation), assessment practices, awards and grants, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
