Teaching and Reviewing Remotely
Many academics are registering for Summative Peer Review of Teaching in preparation for promotion in 2021. In many cases, this means that their teaching needs to be reviewed remotely (synchronous online). To support reviewees and reviewers alike, we have developed the Supplementary resource - Peer Review of Synchronous Teaching document, which offers suggestions for adapting Summative Peer Review of Teaching to remote teaching.
Summative Peer Review of Teaching
Summative Peer Review of Teaching allows teaching staff who apply for academic promotion or UNSW Awards for Teaching (Excellent Teachers) to provide direct evidence of their teaching practice to their respective committees.
All teaching will be reviewed against six principles.
Before registering for Summative Peer Review of Teaching
- familiarise yourself with the information on this website
- refer to the Summative Peer Review of Teaching Guidelines

An information session for academics applying for Summative Peer Review will be held at the end of Term 1 2021. Details for the information session will be posted here soon.
To be a reviewer you must be recommended by your Faculty's Associate Dean of Education (or equivalent). The next reviewer workshop will take place on Tuesday 30th of March 2-3pm. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Formative Peer Review of Teaching
If you are not applying for promotion or a UNSW Award for Teaching and would still like to engage in peer review, please contact your faculty. Many faculties offer Formative Peer Review schemes intended to develop and improve teaching practice. If you would like to engage in formative peer review, please refer to the contact list below.
