There are many advantages to peer review of teaching where colleagues act collegially as mentors in the development of teaching. This guide offers templates and advice on how to peer review constructively.

We can help tutors and lecturers form teaching observation pairs or, alternatively, work with departments and faculties to coach individuals keen to become proficient in the peer review of teaching.
