Wolfpack Peer Reviewers

Faculty who complete either the Course Improvement Grant or the Course Essentials Express Grant are encouraged to become peer reviewers. Faculty complete the QM Peer Reviewer Course and join the pool of Peer Reviewers at NC State. To serve as a peer reviewer faculty need to have taught at least a 3 credit hour online within the last 18 months. Peer Reviewers will perform at least one internal review per year of an online or blended/hybrid course that has met eligibility requirements. Reviewers will serve on a team of 3 reviewers and will receive a small financial award for each internal review completed. 

Certified Peer Reviewers may also perform QM Official Course reviews for QM Certification of courses within the UNC System and outside of NC State.
