We are in the final week of our digital research project that the Media 21 students have been engaged in now for about six weeks as they have investigated issues facing our veterans who have served or who are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. We began the first of four days of peer review of the projects yesterday; each day, each collaborative research/inquiry group is assigned a fellow group to evaluate using the form embedded below. Susan Lester, my co-teacher, and I are looking forward to reading student feedback and then debriefing the results of that feedback with each group (we will keep the individual feedback forms private so that students feel free to provide honest and constructive assessment/evaluation).
Are you incorporating peer review into any aspect of your research projects that you facilitate? If so, how do you go integrate peer review as an assessment and reflective learning experience?
