You should complete your peer review by the end of each week (11.59pm on Sunday) to receive 1 mark towards the total 5 marks available for peer reviews.
Please be mindful that the presenter will be able to read your feedback – make it constructive, but kind and fair (just as if you were speaking face-to-face in a classroom environment). To be awarded 1 mark, each peer review must include:
• One or more strengths of the presentation
• One area for improvement
• One question it prompted about the topic
There is no word limit for peer reviews. Incomplete or inappropriate posts will receive 0 marks. PRESENTATION TOPICS
