Specific examples of peer reviews of teaching in business disciplines are limited in the literature, yet peer review helps academics improve their teaching practice, develops collegial and collaborative relationships and engenders reflective practice.

This paper provides a case study action learning example of a critical friend peer review of teaching practice over one semester. Instead of focussing on standard classroom teaching practice, this peer dialogue differed from more traditional approaches by focussing on those students outside the classroom: external and transnational.

An emergent framework for peers to reference in conducting their own peer review of their teaching practice is presented. Limitations in the scope and scale of the review are noted and implications for future peer reviews are discussed.
