Abstract

Seven pre-tenure librarians at the University Library at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), concerned about the effectiveness of their library instruction, created a peer review of teaching (PROT) group. This article provides an overview of the LIS literature on PROT and identifies the commonalities and variations found in PROT programs. The authors then describe the development, implementation, and benefits of the PROT program at IUPUI. The program outcomes are discussed, including benefits for the observed, the observer, and for the PROT group as a whole. The authors also found that the implementation of a PROT program can enhance the sense of community among colleagues.
