The project developed an open-source, web enabled peer review tool (PROTL). The PROTL system incorporates banks of standards-based criteria for use in peer review, explanations of the meaning of these criteria, exemplars, and an underlying database that can record peer review results and make them available for promotion or awards. The project website provides resources such as an online manual, detailed guides, tutorials and features of the PROTL system, case studies and publications.

Peer Review of Teaching in Australian Higher Education

The University of Melbourne

While there is growing interest in peer review of teaching in the Australian higher education sector, the level of awareness and expertise is variable. Some institutions have established processes in place. At other institutions involvement is variable in approach and tends to be localised to particular faculties or departments. The team believes the challenge in improving the uptake and effectiveness of peer review of teaching is largely a policy one at the level of individual institutions. This project will create a new, easy-to-use set of resources to assist institutions to effectively implement policies and programs for the peer review of teaching. A key feature of this project will be the development of a distinctive approach to peer review of teaching that embodies an Australian conception of the scholarship of teaching and that aligns with existing national initiatives for enhancing learning and teaching in higher education.
