Asynchronous Short Course in Student-Centered Assessment: Peer Review and Feedback

July 5, 2021 | 8:00am to July 30, 2021 | 12:00pm
Carmen Canvas

Student-to-student peer review promotes engagement among peers, encourages metacognitive reflection on performance standards, and provides feedback in greater quantity and from more diverse perspectives than an instructor can provide alone. Learn how to integrate peer review in your course using a new or existing assignment. Find out how to use the peer review tool in Carmen, guide students to complete the peer review and provide supportive collegial feedback to their peers, and assess the quality of feedback students provide to each other.

Format: Fully online, asynchronous, with optional virtual “office hours” with the facilitator.

Time commitment: about 5 hours per week over 4 weeks between July 5 and July 30, 2021. Time and effort each week includes one required article/reading, a video read-through of the weekly article, video lecture on content, and a weekly draft submission of a portion of your portfolio.

    Apply evidence-based approaches to the design of peer assessment and feedback teaching strategies.
