The PEER Review of Teaching website has been launched less than a week ago, but has already made its presence felt around MQ, around Australia and around the globe. The website contains video and print resources that guide the user through a cycle of peer review of teaching.
They are based on the interactive PEER Model, which illustrates the interplay of communication, peer review processes and the context in which peer review of teaching occurs. Videos and text-based resources support the reviewer and reviewee to position peer review of teaching as a collegial and mutually beneficial activity and to view teaching as more than mere classroom observation.
The resources form part of an international project [link] funded by the Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) and were developed in collaboration with Macquarie University (lead institution), La Trobe University (Australia), Lund University (Sweden) and The University of Pretoria (South Africa). Besides the project team members and project partners, the project also involved 24 Macquarie University staff members as co-investigators and Prof. Mick Healey as external evaluator.
The videos and website were produced by Parryville Media.
