Peer Review of Teaching Project (PRTP)

Peer Review of Teaching Project (PRTP)

The Peer Review of Teaching Project (PRTP) provides faculty with a structured and practical model that combines inquiry into the intellectual work of a course, careful investigation of student understanding and performance, and faculty reflection on teaching effectiveness. Begun in 1994, the PRTP has engaged hundreds of faculty members from numerous universities. In 2005, the project was awarded a TIAA-CREF Theodore M. Hesburgh Award Certificate of Excellence in recognition of it being an exceptional faculty development program designed to enhance undergraduate student achievement. Faculty are invited to become part of the national community exploring how to document the intellectual work of postsecondary teaching. This website is designed to serve as an international repository for course portfolios written by faculty who teach at postsecondary institutions. Faculty are welcome to archive their course portfolio on this site so that their work can be shared, used, and reviewed by other faculty. Faculty are also encouraged to write a review for any of the course portfolios in the repository.
