The Peer Online Course Review (POCR) process is a supportive peer-to-peer experience that uses the CVC-OEI Course Design Rubric to improve the design of Canvas shells for optimal student learning and experience.
Your peer reviewer will be an SMC faculty member from another department who will
use the rubric to help you align your course to evidence-based practices in distance
The POCR process is not related to official evaluations or tenure review, but rather a friendly, supportive way to receive feedback on your Canvas shell design in a way that respects signature pedagogies of disciplines and instructors' personal styles.
