"Exploring Peer Review in Canvas" - Jamie Leslie

Title: Exploring Peer Review in Canvas
Description: It can be difficult to develop assignments for students to interact. Faculty will show screen shots and provide feedback from using peer review for an assignment in Canvas. Peer review can be assigned as blinded or even double-blind. Students seemed to enjoy the experience of providing feedback to a peer though there were some challenges for them to locate the assignment.
Abstract: Online college courses are in need of increased student interaction. It can be challenging for faculty to design assignments to facilitate student-to-student interaction. Canvas has an option to "require peer review" for an assignment, but faculty may be unfamiliar with that option. I introduced the peer review assignment in a course this semester and can provide details on how it worked. Students had some challenges finding the assignment but reported a positive experience from the activity.Click here to return to the Virtual Conference Agenda page.
