From the Back Cover
This concise yet comprehensive sourcebook is for administrators, particularly deans and department chairs, who wish to develop a strong peer review component to their system for evaluating and improving teaching. And this book is for faculty who will be engaged in the system, as both evaluators and as subjects of teaching evaluation. It consists of two parts: Part One details a framework for designing and implementing peer review, and Part Two provides guidelines, protocols, and forms for each task involved in an effective system of peer review.
