Limited Capacity filling up

Open Session Limited to 20 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

This interactive session focuses on two key issues: 
• How does peer evaluation strategy bridge learning and assessment in online learning/teaching?
• What is the influence of disciplinary drivers in using peer evaluation?

The case study which is central to this session is a story of peer evaluation implementation in a graduate business administration program offered online. Points of interest include course curriculum features, technology tools and the framing of peer evaluation in the overall assessment design in courses. The questions that the participants bring to this session will both frame this story and lead to further discussions.

Participants open the session with a brief account of their experience or questions in using peer evaluation in their teaching/course design. This generates focal questions for discussion during the session. Followed by the case study presentation, participants address these questions from their respective disciplinary, teaching and curricular contexts.
