Some History

Lake Superior College began its online peer review process in 2004.**

In 2013, a group of Lake Superior College faculty members began revising the peer review rubric to incorporate more online teaching pedagogy and best practices. The new POET Peer Review Process was implemented in 2014. Documents and processes will continually be improved and updated, so check back often.

Over 100 peer reviews have been completed since Lake Superior College began its peer review program.


**The review rubric and annotations are adapted from the Quality Matters project that was awarded to MarylandOnline and sponsored in part by The Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), U.S. Department of Education.
