The Peer Review College

Background and Objectives

The PRC brings together practitioners with experience in providing high-quality teaching and learning, with a professional and technical focus. The network spans Alliance Universities, encompassing “critical friends” with expertise in discipline and thematic areas.

The PRC has the following aims:

  • To draw on cutting-edge pedagogic expertise from across the Alliance to benefit the whole network;
  • To develop curriculum and teaching teams in ways that will benefit the student experience at an institutional level;
  • To act as a shared resource accessible to any member of the TEA looking for support and challenge in their teaching-related work, such as when seeking course enhancement, professional development or refreshing marketing for courses.

TEA partners can submit requests for support from the Peer Review College via theĀ TEA Programme Team
