Guidelines: Live Peer Reviews
Participation in Live Peer Reviews is strictly voluntary. All sessions will be moderated by the instructor.
In order to participate in Live Peer Reviews, you must:
a) submit your assignment to the instructor for immediate distribution to all other students who have agreed to participate in Live Peer Review,
b) read, in advance, the assignments of each peer that has volunteered for a Live Peer Review,
c) return your constructive written feedback about the assignments to the instructor one week in advance of the designated Live Peer Review, and
d) focus all critiques upon "rules of writing," rather than personal bias.
The instructor reserves the right to ban from Live Peer Reviews any student who consistently misses a submission deadline, or who consistently submits written or verbal criticisms that include personal bias or objectionable language.
If you do not choose to submit your assignments for a Live Peer Review, you are encouraged to mute your microphone (or phone) and listen to the live discussions.
If you do not choose to submit your assignments for a Live Peer Review, you will still be responsible for paying the full course tuition, as described above.
Submitting Your Assignments for Live Peer Reviews
Regardless of whether you participate in Live Peer Reviews, your assignments will receive written feedback from the instructor.
Assignments for Live Peer Reviews must be formatted using basic manuscript guidelines. No assignment may be longer than 1,000 words (or 4 double-spaced manuscript pages.)
Each Live Peer Review is limited to 2 hours. Every effort will be made by the instructor to moderate student discussions, to adhere to the time schedule, and to focus feedback on the constructive.
Those students who wish to participate in Live Peer Reviews must submit their assignments in advance to the instructor (a process that will be described on the first day of the course.) Assignments selected for Live Peer Reviews will be chosen strictly on a first-come, first-served basis, based upon the time stamp of your email to the instructor.
Only those students who have submitted written feedback about another student's assignment to the instructor, in advance, may speak about that other student's assignment during a live review.
In order for their assignments to be discussed, students must be present, online, during the Live Peer Review session.
A maximum of 10 minutes will be allotted to discuss an assignment. If discussions about an assignment are not forthcoming from peers, the instructor reserves the right to cut short the allotted 10-minutes of discussion for any one submission, and open discussion on the next submission.
When adhering to the 10-minute limit per assignment, the maximum number of submissions that can be discussed in a 2-hour session is 11. If discussions conclude early, the instructor reserves the right to introduce additional assignments for review, to fill the remaining class time.
If you login late to the class, the instructor reserves the right to remove your assignment from the discussion.
If you arrive late to the session, and if you are still present and logged in at the conclusion of the last assignment's peer review, the instructor may re-open the discussion of your assignment, but only if sufficient time (15+ minutes) remains in the session.
If you have been notified by the instructor that your assignment is one of the 11 that have been scheduled for Live Peer Review – and if time runs out before your assignment can be discussed during that particular session -- the instructor will contact you privately about alternatives for your assignment’s review.
If an insufficient number of assignments has been submitted to fill a 2-hour, live review, the instructor reserves the right to utilize remaining class time for lecture material -- or to end the session early.
