Peer Review of Teaching in Higher Education ELT522



The purpose of this unit is to promote the continuous enhancement of your professional practice in university learning and teaching. This is achieved primarily by helping you to apply knowledge of the principles underpinning critical reflection and build the skills of effective engagement in that process. These skills of objectively and critically analysing, evaluating and justifying are used to examine the assumptions that underpin your teaching and learning practices. A range of experiences such as active participation in class discussions, engagement with the relevant literature and participation in a peer observation process support the development of your critical reflection skills.

On completion of this unit you will be able to:

  • Apply the process of critical reflection to your learning and teaching practices.
  • Undertake scholarly peer review of teaching.
