The International Dyslexia Association (our “parent” organization) is looking for peer review members of the Program Accreditation and Review Team to serve as agents of IDA in their evaluation and decision-making processes. If you are interested in participating, APPLY NOW; the program starts in April.
What does a Peer Reviewer do?
A Peer Reviewer is an integral part of the IDA Program Review and Accreditation team. This team works to review programs’ curriculum, practicum, and faculty qualifications in order to determine programs’ readiness to prepare educators according to the Knowledge and Practice Standards (KPS) for Teachers of Reading, including the principles and practices of Structured Literacy.
What makes a good Peer Reviewer?
– a reading educator preparation professional or program faculty member
– experienced applying the principles and practices of Structured Literacy to prevent reading failure and/or to remediate off-track readers (including readers with disabilities) with profiles characteristic of dyslexia
