Peer review is a natural fit for science communication settings, because it is such a vital component of the scientific publishing process. Thus, involving students in peer review may not only improve students’ writing, but also their understanding of science and engagement with it as a discipline. It will also help them see the benefit of giving and receiving constructive feedback and of considering different opinions.
In this podcast, we hear from two instructors with experience in integrating peer review into their classes. They pass on their own tips for getting the most out of the process, and for inspiring students to buy in to any related exercises.
We have created a number of complementary resources that will help you run successful peer review sessions in your classes. These are available to download once you have contacted a site administrator here. Once you have provided your details (including a verifiable academic institution email address) you will receive a password that will enable you to download the materials.
The suggested solutions of these activities require a password for access. We encourage interested instructors to contact Dr. Jackie Stewart and the ScWRL team to obtain access. Please fill out the Access Request and Feedback Form to inquire about resources you are interested in.
