Kritik is available for DC faculty members

Durham College's (DC) Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is thrilled to announce a partnership with K​ritik – an online platform that facilitates peer-to-peer assessment of student work, such as essays, presentations, lab reports and more in a variety of disciplines. To help DC faculty members use Kritik in their courses, the CTL is happy to share the below online information sessions. ​​

Why use Kritik?

Kritik enables students to:

  • Evaluate and comment on the work of their peers, based on a rubric provided by the instructor.
  • Learn to see multiple perspectives and solutions to the same assignment.
  • Reflect upon the quality of their own work.
  • Develop soft skills including critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.

With this approach, students have more opportunities to:

  • Obtain personalized feedback quickly, learn from it, and integrate that learning into future work.
  • Become skilled at giving fair and accurate feedback and communicate it in a constructive manner.
  • Interact and collaborate with their peers.

Note: Integrating Kritik into DC Connect is in discussion, and further details will be available on the CTL we​bsite.
