Peer Review of Teaching
The University of Adelaide model of peer review comprises two related programs, each of which has different purposes and uses varying tools and processes.
The Peer Assisted Reflection and Development Program (PARD-P) is our formative faculty-based peer review of teaching program involving peer observation of teaching. The program is open to all teaching staff regardless of their level of experience.
It is recommended that staff undertake a PARD-P prior to applying to complete a TRP.
TRP is our summative peer review of teaching program.
TRP has been designed to provide evidence in support of staff applications for individual University teaching awards, academic promotion, or conversion to Education specialist appointments.
Dimensions of teaching
There are ten dimensions of teaching that inform the process of peer observation.
Applicants for the TRP must choose a minimum of six out of the ten dimensions, and we recommend that those completing a PADR-P chose to focus on one or two for their peer review.
