Summary: It is becoming increasingly important that teachers and educators accumulate a balanced evaluation of teaching performance and educational roles (Marshall, 2004). Peer review is widely regarded as a critical component of this process. This papers re-examines the peer review process.
Description: It is clear that, in an educational setting, peer review of teaching practice when undertaken in a professional manner benefits both the peer reviewee and the key stakeholders. However, it can be argued that the role of the Peer Reviewer is currently undervalued and lacks appropriate acknowledgement. As educators and colleagues we have an obligation to address this oversight by taking a, positive, extra step within the feedback process. To put it simply, we should re-examine the peer review process and close the feedback loop.
