Schools Peer Learning
Peer learning is a powerful mean to spread innovation and share good practice among professionals in a non-judgmental way, providing a mutual learning experience based on trust, openness, practical insights and structured feedback.
In the context of Peer learning between schools, the P2P and P2V project brought to try a novel methodology to conduct peer learning reviews among schools in countries with different education systems. The earlier ERNIST project paved the way for this methodology with its ‘school portraits’ from 20 schools from six countries conducted by inspectorates.
Peer learning consists of several activities including visiting the peers, self evaluation, peer evaluations (reporting on visits for instance). In P2P, visits were conducted between pairs of schools peer reviewing each other. P2V introduced a third dimension to the process as schools were peer reviewing in triads.
Several tools and templates are presented in this section for those who would like to know more about this system or even try it themselves. Additionally, – as one of the hindrances of peer reviewing among schools is the cost induced by travel – we introduce an online tool prototype: the Toolkit for Investigating eMaturity in Schools (TIES) – which shows how to conduct peer reviews online to minimize travel.
