Intellectual Outputs

Peer review toolkit


The peer review toolkit (IO3) will be a tool to evaluate all preschool services in Europe on the correct implementation of play based learning methodologies in play activities. The aims of the IO3 are:
  • Enhancing ongoing personal practice
  • Engaging in reflective, constructive and analytical discussion with a peer on the use of play based learning activities
  • Sharing good practice and allow for ongoing professional development
The IO3 will develop explicit and defined criteria for peer reviewers to apply that will guide the reviewers through the whole peer review process, starting from how to get into peer reviewing, how to organize the peer visit, how to write the reports and provide constructive feedbacks, including review templates. Through this output will be delivered a tool capable to support teachers, pedagogical coordinators from preschools in Europe in evaluating the quality of their peers. The guidelines and the tools available at the end of the project will be replicable in every other preschool and this will ensure the transferability of the output.


In the framework of the PLAYING PROJECT, a group of participants, made up of 11 teachers and pedagogical coordinators from 5 European countries focused on the PEER REVIEW - Intellectual Output 3.
Peer review is the evaluation of work by one or more people with similar competencies (teachers/pedagogical coordinators).
During the peer review, a group of peers - the partners of the project- visit the Elmer preschool services, in Brussels.
