Information for Educational Designers

If the academic makes a request for an Educational Designer to be part of the Faculty of Science Peer Review process the Faculty Student and Staff Liaison team will submit an SRS requesting this support.

Educational Designers will refer to the information available at the Teaching Dynamics page.

If the academic undertaking the review is focussing on particular dimensions such as the Graduate Learning Outcomes the ED may be in the position to direct the academic to relevant resources.

What are the essential protocols that I must observe?

  1. EDs will approach their role in the spirit of respect and collegiality in a professional and sensitive manner.
  2. The ED is a silent observer. While they may initially be introduced to the class (if appropriate), during a class a reviewer will not speak, address the students, participate in learning activities or offer opinions on the teaching or the material presented unless specifically invited to by the academic being reviewed.
  3. Agreements made at pre-review meetings or discussions will be abided by during the review.
  4. Material generated during the course of peer review (i.e., review plans, reports and handwritten notes) will not be provided to any third party unless otherwise agreed with the reviewee. The ED will not discuss the outcomes and discussions of the review with anyone other than the reviewee without the specific permission of the reviewee.
