A FACET Peer Review (coaching, formative, or summative) always begins with a request from a faculty member to the FACET office. Please do not directly contact coaches or peer reviewers. FACET does not provide Peer Reviews at the request of department chairs, deans, or other administrators.
The process of assigning a coach or peer reviewer may take a month, especially as the number of reviews is increasing; please be patient. For formative reviews, no request will be facilitated with less than six weeks prior to the date it is needed by.
For summative reviews, it must be reasonable that the review and write up be completed at least three months before it is needed. We believe that the best practice is to request these reviews two semesters before they would be used in a promotion or award dossier. Why? Because if the evaluation rates teaching below the "excellent" level, the reviewed faculty member has time to demonstrate responsiveness and growth, which is a hallmark of teaching excellence.
