Project aims:

Peer learning and peer assessment are well established pedagogies which can support learning and provide a range of benefits, such as improved self-reflection, team working, and communication skills. In recent decades the embedding of peer learning and assessment in online environments has been investigated, often with conflicting findings. My research explores whether students could have confidence in online peer learning and assessment by considering key factors for engagement and creating an environment that would promote effective online peer learning and assessment.
