Description: Peer review and feedback are integral to the development of strong web-resources for faculty at SERC and are part of the process for creating recognition for contributors to the site. Please help by participating in the review process.

Description: SERC websites provide opportunities for faculty to share with one another the ideas, activities and materials that they have developed and tested in their classes -- and to receive recognition for that development process. Whenever you contribute you will receive acknowledgment on the resulting webpage or description. Many of the projects provide mechanisms for reviewing contributed teaching materials. For example, the Starting Point project collaborates with the DLESE Community Review system to obtain peer review of your teaching examples in order to establish the value placed on them by our community.
