“Thru the Lens” Continues with a Look at Peer Review Standard II

Please mark your calendar to join us on March 31st at 9 AM for the second “Thru the Lens” Peer Review session. We will be looking at  two courses (Marnie Chapman’s Biology 112:Human Anatomy and Physiology II, AND Maren Haavig’s Accounting 379: Fund and Governmental Accounting) through the lens of Peer Review Standard II.

Peer Review Through the LensStandard II deals with course outcomes and goals. We’ll be looking at:

  • Different ways faculty use their syllabus to establish the course goals and clearly state class priorities.
  • Course objectives to see if they are measurable and written from a student’s view
  • Different ways to capture a student’s attention and focus it on the learning objectives
  • Ways faculty create clear and concise statements or checklists for assignments and due dates

Monday, March 31 at 9 AM we will use Collaborate  to meet so you can participate from your office or home. Please use the link shown, look for the “Tools Box” and click on “Participate Now” to attend. After joining the Collaborate session you will be given the information to log into each of the courses that we’ll be reviewing. Please have a headset with you so you participate by voice as well as text throughout the hour. If you have never done a Collaborate session before you might want to try logging in prior to the session to make sure you are ready at 9 am.

We hope you will join us for this session. It is a great way to see what other faculty are doing, share ideas, provide feedback and to gain more understanding of the peer review process and rubric. Mark your calendar today to reserve the date and time. We’ll post more information soon.  

Thank you Marnie and Maren for opening up your courses for this mini-peer review session!
