About Peer Review Activity

Peer review activity is an opportunity for you to share your design for a short course or training activity with your peers within the learning community on this course and use their feedback to develop your ideas further.

Please read the instructions below for how to submit your peer review assignment, give and receive feedback:

  • You will need to follow the instructions given and write down your course/module initial design (maximum 500 words) as an assignment and submit it by clicking on Submit button.

  • Please don’t forget to take into account the assignment guidelines given the rubric, they will be used by your reviewer(s) to review your assignment.

  • After you submit your assignment, it will be randomly allocated to another learner on this course (who has also submitted their own assignment).

  • That learner(s) will send you some feedback on your assignment, and the feedback should relate to the assignment’s guidelines the rubric

  • The work and the feedback will remain PRIVATE between the two of you (the only other people who will be able to access it are the course administrators, but they will not share it).

As any learner, who has submitted work, may review more than one piece of work, you may receive more than one review.

We, your educators on this course, encourage you to keep your work and any reviews that you receive, for your further reflection and improvement of your initial design ideas.
