Keynote title: Learning from each other – Peer Review and Contributing pedagogies
Monday, 6 July @ 14:00
We cannot help but learn from each other – and the asynchronous communication channels offered by technology make this both easy and convenient. In this talk, I will talk about two educational systems: different in form, for different audiences, but based on the same underlying philosophy that learning from peers has remarkable benefits. For students, I will discuss my experiences of providing online student peer-review services for over ten years; for instructors, I will describe a system for sharing teaching tips. In each case, I will report on responses from both the keen adopters and the cynics.
