Peer Review of Teaching (PRoT)
Each teaching staff member at James Cook University will engage in collaborative peer review of teaching for student success at least once each year, either as reviewer or reviewee. Teaching staff are encouraged to be reviewed annually, and at least biennially. Ongoing sessional teaching staff will also engage in PRoT as a condition of ongoing appointment.
Ownership of the peer review process and products will remain with the reviewee, and the peer review process will exemplify and model professional, ethical and collegial behaviour in line with the JCU code of conduct.
Engagement in PRoT and reflection on the process and outcomes will be included in the annual PMP for all teaching staff.
Applications for promotion will include documentation of the incorporation of PRoT into the cycle of reflection and improvement of teaching and learning.
PRoT is aligned with the Core Principles of the Learning, Teaching and Assessment Policy.
