Next steps and further training

Now that we have covered the process and criteria of peer review of teaching, you can use the following template in your departments, tailoring it for your unique needs. LTSI is available to support you in training for peer review of teaching through consultations and upcoming interactive sessions. We can tailor workshops and training to your department, as well as train interested peer reviewers.

How to use

The following template complements a well-structured and detailed teaching observation of a peer for the peer-review of teaching process for departmental tenure and promotion process and a Faculty’s teaching dossier. This template is generic and meant to be adapted to suit faculty’s unique needs and disciplinary differences. This template can also be used for formative evaluation, to prepare for summative evaluation. Reviewers are faculty members with strong records in teaching, trained to undertake peer review and are at arms-length from the faculty being reviewed (instructor).
