Peer review allows a reflective approach to teaching that can become a key process in the professional learning of academics. In many universities, student ratings are often the most influential and sometimes the only measure of teaching effectiveness. We sought to describe the usefulness of a single peer review and student evaluations for staff teaching within the disciplines of science and medicine, fields of academia in which peer review and student evaluation are not yet integral to teaching practice and its quality control. The peer review process at Flinders University consists primarily of the mutual observation and feedback for a pair of academic staff using single pre-arranged teaching sessions.
