Peer Online Course Review, POCR, is an opportunity to collaborate with other faculty teaching online courses. Peer review allows faculty to identify areas for ongoing professional development and support, while also leveraging one another as thought partners and inspiration.
The focus of POCR is to revise course design and enhance existing material and assessments in order to improve the student experience, increase online success outcomes, and close the equity gap. POCR is built on the standards established in the CVC-OEI Rubric.
To participate, you should have a course that has been taught 100% online for an entire quarter. In addition, the course should be one in which you plan to continue to teach 100% online.
Participants receive a $1200 stipend!
