This year I implemented a bunch of new things in my “Introduction to Research and Ethics” module, including peer assessment. I hadn’t done it before so was a little nervous about it, but it worked out really well. There’s a great write-up that my faculty’s CELT officer wrote with me about the process available here.
I was particularly chuffed at being mentioned in the minutes from the assessment board – it’s not often that particular lecturers get mentioned and commended by name by the external examiner!
I plan to put together a portfolio for an internal teacher fellowship application this year – so wish me luck!
If you’re one of my incoming second years – you have this to look forward to! If you went through it last year, you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve learned a lot from your experience and appreciate your patience!
