Brief Abstract

Peer review can be stimulating and enjoyable, but busy faculty and designers often find it difficult to make time for review, reflection, and idea sharing. I conceptualized and pilot-tested methods for small- and large-group peer review that required very little time on behalf of my participants, and had successful outcomes for course design and revision. The large group peer review process may be easily scaled for different group sizes, and may be utilized by faculty, designers, and other program or course stakeholders.
