Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Calibrated Peer Review™ Version 4 (CPR4)– Supporting the Scholarship of Teaching

Workshop Title: Calibrated Peer Review™ Version 4 (CPR4)– Supporting the Scholarship of Teaching
Descrption: Calibrated Peer Review™, a widely adopted instructional management tool, enables student writing that probes understanding of concepts without increasing grading resources. CPR4 now provides assignment authors with a citation record, which documents the use and adaptation of their creative work. Instructors can create new materials or choose to adapt from the new indexed library of assignments. In a CPR4 assignment, students write short essays on a specific topic following directions that encourage critical thinking. After electronic text submission, students review prewritten and scored “calibration” essays, which train them as reviewers. They then anonymously review peer work and receive feedback on their performance. Research shows that CPR use can improve student concept understanding, writing skills, and evaluation skills. The workshop will focus on issues in authoring and publishing effective assignments that can be easily used or adapted by others. Experienced CPR users are invited to publish their existing assignments in the new central library; new users are encouraged to explore and create materials for their own courses. An exam question or a homework assignment, which students have struggled with, provides an ideal topic for a CPR assignment. Participants should come with topics they want their students to understand deeply.
