Peer review supports educators to provide evidence of good educational practice when seeking promotion or as part of probation conditions. It can also support the development of contemporary relevant discipline-based learning and teaching practices.
Summative peer review is used in preparation for promotion and probation processes.
Formative peer review provides a valuable opportunity for reflection on educational practices and fosters discussions on ways to improve.
Educational practice includes a range of practices that reflect the complex roles educators perform including:
1. Teaching practice
2. Course leadership and design practice
3. Subject design practice
Allows educators to gather and share evidence of good educational practice when seeking acknowledgement of their achievements for promotion or probation review.
These reviews provide a snapshot of current practice - the peer reviewee is observed by a colleague (the reviewer) who gathers evidence for the nominated area of practice.
Aiming to improve educational practices' quality, these reviews are voluntary and support reflective practice.
These reviews provide a valuable opportunity for participating in discussions with and receiving feedback from an experienced colleague.
Being a reviewer provides a positive learning experience, contributes to educational leadership and is an opportunity to connect with peers. Peer reviewers nominate to be included in the pool and need to have at least three years of teaching experience and to be available for up to three hours of time during a teaching session.
All potential reviewers need to complete a training session and work through the Peer review team. Contact: PeerReview@csu.edu.au
