Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Dr. Bruce Lenthall, Executive Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, Advisor on Educational Initiatives to the Vice Provost for Education, University of Pennsylvania

In evaluating teaching, faculty peer review plays a vital role, providing insider insight into classroom technique and course materials. The peer review process can also support faculty creativity, reflection, and development. In this interactive session we will discuss guidelines for the peer review process. Guidelines can lend both shape and consistency to the process, as well as raise awareness of the importance of diverse approaches to teaching. We will also consider how we might actually deploy such guidelines in our own contexts. If we can use better peer review practices to evaluate teaching, then, in turn, we can use that evaluation to further improve teaching across our fields.

Both tenured and pre-tenure faculty are encouraged to register for the interactive workshop. We would like as many faculty as possible to attend this rescheduled date, but if you are interested and unable to attend, please still fill out the registration form - it will be sent to all faculty through Spaces and via Lafayette Today. A recording of the first part of the workshop (Dr. Lenthall’s overview) will be made available for those who can't attend, and we also plan to schedule additional interactive discussions on an alternate date.
