Peer Collaboration: Improving Teaching through Comprehensive Peer Review
Smith, Shelley L.
To Improve the Academy, v33 n1 p94-112 Sep 2014
This article includes a brief rationale and review of the literature on peer review of teaching (PRT). Based on that literature review, it offers a proposal for an optimal formative review process that results in a teaching portfolio that would reflect a faculty member's efforts and successes in a critically reflective PRT process, and contributes to ongoing teaching improvement. It then looks at potential areas of faculty resistance and concern and offers a discussion of potential strategies to overcome those concerns.
