Psychology courses require students to expand their minds and reflect on how people think and behave. This type of critical thinking truly opens up the door for meaningful discoveries, and Prof. Lara Freberg who teaches psychology at Cal-Poly University, has found peer assessment to be a great mechanism to help students share and discuss these learnings. 

Check out some of our session highlights in the short video below, and see how you can adapt activities and key takeaways to your own courses to provide a more enriching learning experience for your students with peer assessment.

By combining her love of psychology with her passion for new teaching technologies, Prof. Freberg has been using tech-enabled peer assessment to improve student understanding and enhance their critical thinking abilities. This has allowed her to establish a safe and constructive environment where her students feel comfortable interacting and contributing to each other's growth. 

Prof. Freberg’s experiences with peer assessment in her courses can be well applied to any classroom, especially ones with a focus on psychology, sociology, argumentation, communication, and other social science-related courses. 

What to expect:

  • Learnings and strong practices when implementing peer assessment
  • Preparing students for peer evaluations
  • Peer assessment activity examples in psychology and social science courses
  • Live discussion focusing on improving collaboration, reflection, and work quality
  • Impact on student engagement, understanding of course concepts, social interactions, and accountability
