The Peer Feedback Experience (ONLINE) (Summer 2025)

The Peer Feedback Experience (ONLINE) (Summer 2025)

This course can count toward the Certificate of Proficiency in Teaching for eLearning.

Instructors at York have several platforms for peer-review available to choose from, including eClass Workshop, PeerScholar, Turnitin PeerMark, and a new pilot offering, Kritik. Whether you are exploring peer-review, -feedback, and -grading for the first time, or you are refining your existing approach, we invite you to join us for an immersive experience as we engage with the pedagogy and practice of peer-based learning.

Learning Outcomes: 

By the end of this course, participants will be able to effectively select and use online tools for peer feedback by:

-Determining which peer-feedback tool best suits their needs
-Drafting a plan for preparing students to engage in the peer-feedback process
-Adapting rubrics for their own teaching context to help guide assessment of peer feedback
-Engaging in online peer-feedback activities from the perspective of a student

This course is open to all course directors at York and no previous experience with online peer feedback or peer review is required. Participants can expect to spend a total of approximately 4-8 hours engaging with course content and activities. The course is designed asynchronously, meaning that while there are several internal deadlines, participants can complete tasks at any time that is convenient to them. This course is actively facilitated by a Teaching Commons instructor, and participants will be able to ask questions and access further support and resources by email or through the course eClass at any point.

Upcoming course dates: June 2-27, 2025
