Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Offers a thorough look at peer review in virtual environments.

In a reassessment of peer review practices, Lee-Ann Kastman Breuch explores how computer technology changes our understanding of this activity. She defines "virtual peer review" as the use of computer technology to exchange and respond to one another's writing in order to improve it. Arguing that peer review goes through a remediation when conducted in virtual environments, the author suggests that virtual peer review highlights a unique intersection of social theories of language and technological literacy.

“The book is proof that the body of scholarship related to computers in composition, and specifically virtual review, is a growing area. Breuch articulates a salient point: as teachers of writing our perspectives must be broader to accommodate new technologies available to our students.” — The Writing Lab Newsletter

"Breuch has carefully examined the state and art of virtual peer review in the computer and writing community, and this community will benefit from and appreciate the rigor and texture of her scholarship and analysis." — Hugh Burns, coeditor of Intelligent Tutoring Systems: Evolutions in Design

"This book confirms what I have found to be true about virtual peer review in both onsite and online computer classrooms. It expands our understanding of what happens when students conduct virtual peer review and suggests how we can improve their reviewing ability and outcomes." — Kelli Cargile Cook, Utah State University

Lee-Ann Kastman Breuch is Assistant Professor of Rhetoric at the University of Minnesota at Twin Cities.
