Policies and Practices
What Policies and Practices Support Peer Review of Teaching?
Two areas can be defined and shared across the unit in order to guide participants:
- Peer Review Policy includes a statement about its major purpose, who it is for (rank requirements, tenured/non-tenured), its frequency, selection and qualifications of peer observers, preparation/training for this role, components of and process for the review, and the documentation that participants are expected to generate, as well as what will be done with it.

- Practices for Implementing Policies. Constructing these plans is a context-based process that is subject to revision based on experiences and new learning as the department implements its peer review. Learn More
