Peer Online Course Review (POCR) is an opportunity for faculty that teach online courses to collaborate with one another with the goal to improve course design and online teaching instruction. Peer review allows faculty to identify areas for ongoing professional development and support, while also leveraging one another as thought partners and inspiration.
