Peer Review of Teaching and Curriculum

With a grant from the Davis Educational Foundation, the CAE offers consultations and workshops on developing a peer review of teaching and curriculum system. Customized to departmental or program school needs, this work aims at both formative (for improvement) and summative (for personnel decisions) feedback on syllabi, assignments, activities, classroom observations, student ratings, etc.

  • To learn more about the Peer Review of Teaching, view our Nuts & Bolts of Peer Review handout (PDF) and consult Nancy Van Note Chism's book: 'Peer Review of Teaching. A Sourcebook' Second Edition (2007, Anker Publishing).
  • To schedule a Peer Review consultation for your department or program, e-mail the CAE.

In Fall 2011, the CAE and the Faculty Development & Evaluation Committee (FDEC) launched a collaboration on the Peer Review of Teaching (PRoT). Faculty teams across campus were invited to work on developing their department or school's peer review of teaching system.

Participating faculty teams include:

The PRoT initiative (a Davis IV-funded CAE project) was co-facilitated by Dr. Larry Miners and Dr. Kathy Nantz.
