Abstract

In higher education student course evaluations are the most commonly used method of course review. In course evaluations, students are asked to rate a faculty member on overt behaviors that are presumed to be characteristic of effective teaching. Students, however, are not in a position to evaluate such important aspects of teaching expertise as content coverage, best practice for a content area, content representation, use of appropriate strategies for the content area, or content and assessment alignment. Since 1993, East Carolina University has used a peer review system in addition to student evaluations. This session will present the process of developing a peer review system that is appropriate for online classes. Additionally, beta testing of the new procedure will be presented with observations of the process from both the observer and observee points of view. Additional concerns unique to course review in the online environment will also be discussed.
