The purpose of Peer Review of Teaching is to help staff evaluate and improve the effectiveness of their teaching. All teaching staff, even those with considerable experience and expertise, can benefit from periodic feedback and reflection on their own teaching and also from their review/observation of others. Peer Review should be a mutually beneficial experience, with the person being reviewed receiving constructive feedback on their practice, and the reviewer identifying aspects of good practice to enhance their own teaching.
