Peer Evaluation

Presented by Ruth Levine, M.D., and Paul Koles, M.D. on October 7, 2010 at 12:00 am

Peer evaluation is an essential component of Team Based Learning, yet many health science educators have encountered difficulties when attempting to incorporate a peer evaluation program into their TBL courses. Peer evaluation is often perceived as an uncomfortable or threatening process.  In this webinar, we will introduce to you the reasons for peer evaluation,   strategies of peer evaluation that have been used in Team Based Learning, and the advantages and disadvantages of the major strategies. We will illustrate the peer evaluation methods that we both use and the reasons that we have incorporated these methods into our respective curricula.
