Feedback is considered a powerful tool in students' learning, based on extensive research within education. In everyday life however, teachers might not always have the resources or time to provide individual feedback to their students. Is peer review a potential solution for this challenge?

While there are other ways to providing feedback to students, via self assessment tests and quizzes, peer feedback offers certain possibilities that can be of value for students' learning. Both for the students who give and the ones who receive feedback. During the workshop we will discuss potential ways to use peer feedback within your course, both from a pedagogical perspective and from a practical perspective.

Welcome to a workshop on teaching and learning with the Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CeUL).

This workshop is aimed for Teachers, course leaders and staff at Stockholm University involved in teaching

 

During the workshop

We consider peer review as a tool for increasing and improving feedback to students as well as using peer review as a potential tool for assessment. Specifically, the workshop will cover the following themes and topics:

  • Consider advantages and disadvantages of peer review in general
  • Reflect on the differences between giving vs receiving feedback from peers.
  • Discuss your experiences in completing the peer review task before the workshop (a shorter peer review assignment will be available before the workshop in the CeUL Square Athena site, see below under preparations)
  • Identify potential ways to implement peer review in your courses
  • Consider available tools for peer review in specifically Athena
