The Summative Peer Review of Teaching Rubric was developed to promote a more consistent approach to reporting on peer reviews of teaching.

The accompanying guidance notes will aid in the implementation of the rubric. The guidance notes are provided as a resource to support existing practices. These documents are not meant to be prescriptive.

The Summative Peer Review of Teaching Rubric was developed from March to June 2018 by an ad hoc working group comprising of faculty members, faculty leadership and members of the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology.

See the Guidance Notes (PDF) for instructions and documentation on rubric usage.
