Event Date & Time
Join us as we explore peerScholar, a self- and peer-assessment tool that allows students to provide anonymous feedback on each other’s assignments. peerScholar activities can encourage critical thinking, creative thought and strong communication skills; promote self-reflection and facilitate increased student participation and engagement.
Hear from fellow faculty members how they are using peerScholar in their courses, and brainstorm with colleagues on ways you might incorporate this powerful tool in your own teaching, which is suitable for both synchronous and asynchronous learning environments.
