peer interviews

Students interview each other and ask fixed questions about their work in progress.

The purpose of a Peer Interview is to talk through evolving ideas rather than comment directly on each others’ work. Students are paired up and ask each other a fixed set of questions about their work in progress to get them to summarise their work and how they approach it. It can be helpful when students are required to demonstrate additional skills, such as note-taking, bibliography, research and essay structure.
