Peer Feedback Taken to the Next Level
It's a senior-level ecology course and one in which students must develop a research grant proposal. They do their first draft of the proposal after three days in the field and then that draft is reviewed in a process that simulates how grant proposals are evaluated. What's unique is that the four-person review panel includes two faculty members and two students from the class. After discussing a proposal, each reviewer prepares written feedback that the grant proposal author then uses to write the final draft.
