Peer review

FACET offers a unique advantage in the Peer Review process. FACET Peer Reviewers would most likely not ever be in the position of serving on tenure or promotion committees for the person requesting there view. The ‘coach’ or Peer Reviewer is either a retired FACET member or assigned from a campus different than the home campus of the person requesting the review.

  • Coaching
  • One-on-one partnership focused on improving a particular aspect of teaching or a particular strategy
  • Not a full peer review
  • The number and frequency of meetings (face-to-face, through email, videoconference, telephone) will be determined by the coach and the person requesting the review
  • On going feedback during the coaching process is used to modify teaching
  • Formative Peer Review
  • Formative peer reviews are a low-risk method of improving teaching that is completely confidential
  • Peer Review Report is provided only to the person requesting the Peer Review
  • Formative peer reviews are more comprehensive than coaching in that an overall evaluation of a course is provided
  • Formative peer reviews result in both feedback and recommendations for future teaching improvements

  • Useful for building a case for excellence in teaching, especially on those campuses where such a review might be considered as an 'outside' letter
  • Useful for teaching award applications
  • Peer Review Report is provided to the person requesting the Peer Review and others, as dictated by the person requesting the Peer Review and the purpose of the review, i.e., promotion and tenure, teaching award, etc
