Course Peer Review Updates

As the Online Learning Excellence team continues to support faculty through the course peer review process, our team would like to share some updates. We are excited to share the list of current faculty members who have successfully completed their course peer review for an online course.

To support the course peer review process, faculty across the College serve on peer review panels in the roles of panel chair, subject matter expert and peer reviewer. We had 135 faculty serve on at least one peer review panel. Additionally, more than 170 faculty members completed the required training to serve on a peer review panel. If you would like to complete the training course to serve on a peer review panel, we invite you to enroll in ASMT 3332: Introduction to Course Peer Review.

Showcase of Completers

Our list of faculty who have successfully completed a Course Peer Review continues to grow each semester. Click on the button below for a list of faculty members who are now credentialed as Tier 2 instructors for aligning their online course with the design and delivery criteria in Valencia’s Rubric for Online Competencies (ROC), and their online courses are ROC-certified.

Participate in a Course Peer Review

We hope you will consider joining the next cohort of faculty participating in Course Peer Review. Full-time faculty members across the College are invited to submit their courses for the peer review process by completing the following survey:

To be considered for a cohort, faculty should be full-time, have completed the Digital Professor Certification (DPC) and have taught the course online at least two terms.

After submitting the survey, faculty will be contacted by a faculty fellow for online learning excellence to discuss the next steps for review.
